Cyber Crime Modules

Here at Essex Chambers of Commerce, we are continually evaluating what we offer businesses as part of their membership and looking for new ideas to promote. In 2018, we are offering a variety of new services under the banner of Industry Standards.

As part of our Industry Standards courses we will be working in partnership with Essex Police’s David Gibb, Cyber Protect Officer from the Cyber Crime Unit, Essex & Kent Serious Crime Directorate to offer businesses a series of six key modules in cyber security.  The modules are:

  • Introduction and Backing up your Data
  • Keeping your Smartphones and Tablets Safe
  • Preventing Malware Damage
  • Avoiding Phishing Attacks
  • Using Passwords to Protect Data
  • Social Media    

 The modules will be FREE of Charge to Essex Chambers’ members as part of their membership benefits, but the modules are also open to non-members for a charge of £100 per person, per module. Attendees will be able to book different modules in separate locations and we hope to offer each module in each location, as we understand businesses have busy diaries.  The modules will take place in Colchester, Thurrock, Southend, and Harlow - the first dates and locations for the modules are listed below and further dates will be issued in due course.

 Each session will be between 9.00am and 12.00pm and attendees will receive an information booklet to take away with them providing advice on how to protect and secure their businesses.  There will also be a chance to ask questions at the end of each session.

Places are limited to 12 attendees per session.

Essex Chambers of Commerce are very proud to be offering these Industry Standard Modules working with the very best experts.  Upon completion of all 6 Modules, which meet Government set standards on cybercrime, attendees will receive a certificate confirming completion of the modules as well as advice and support in how to sign up to Cyber Essentials.

These modules will assist businesses in implementing good cyber security practices, which can enhance the reputation of your business and open up new commercial opportunities. To assist in this further, delegates will get support in signing up to Cyber Essentials, a Government standard in cyber security, where businesses can self-assess against the criteria, or seek independent verification and gain the Cyber Essentials certification, which enables your company to advertise the fact that it adheres to a Government endorsed standard.

 There are two levels of assurance to provide flexibility and affordability: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus. For further information, please visit:
