Know the risks and protect your business from Cyber Crime

Cyber security practices are as important as locking your doors or putting your valuables in a safe. You can and should manage your online security in the same way you would protect any other aspect of your real world business/life.  Doing the basics can reduce the risk and help protect you, your staff and your business from becoming victims of cybercrime. 

Whilst it is accepted you can never be totally secure, it is recognised that we can protect ourselves from most cyber-attacks with some basic security principles and processes for your staff and IT systems.

Essex Police Cyber Crime Protect Team are delivering 2 workshops with the Essex Chambers of Commerce that consist of the basic 6 modules local businesses need to be aware of to upskill themselves in cyber security and learn that by doing the basics right can help protect themselves thus reducing the risk from becoming a victim of cybercrime.

Workshop Modules 1 - 3 - An Introduction to Cyber Security for Business :

These modules will be part of an interactive session covering aspects in preventing Malware damage, Avoiding Phishing attacks and Backing-up your Data. We will run a unique table top exercise that is designed to explore the decisions that people make, in order to protect their businesses\ organisation from modern day threats, such as hacking and malware attacks, in addition to physical security and crime prevention.
