Businesses urged to focus on cyber attack threat
The Institute of Directors (IoD) is teaming up with the Northamptonshire Office of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (OPFCC) and Northamptonshire Police for an event to help businesses crack down on cyber crime.
The scale and complexity of cyber criminality continues to rise, with hackers causing untold damage to businesses. The free-to-attend event will provide practical examples and information on how local organisations can better protect themselves.
The event takes place on 14 October 2022 at the PFCC offices at Darby House, Wellingborough, starting at 9am.
Speakers will focus on the cyber landscape within Northamptonshire and how the risk of fraud and cyber crime can be managed.
The session will be opened by the Northamptonshire PFCC, Stephen Mold and closed by Sarah Canning, IoD branch chair, Leicestershire and South East Midlands.
Attendees will also hear from the county’s Protect & Prevent Officers, who will outline their role in helping businesses to be more secure and recover after an attack. There will be further presentations from experts in software technology, risk identification and mitigation.
Attendees will have opportunities to speak directly with Northamptonshire Police, the IoD and the OPFCC.
