February’s Discuss and Do event promises an evening of phishing! Come along for some practical advice to help you protect yourself against scams and internet fraud. IT security expert Rik Kershaw-Moore of Tsiolovsky IT Security Solutions will present an eye-opening demonstration of the latest internet scams and security threats and explain what practical steps small businesses should take to protect their business and personal data.
Rik is an experienced Information Security Professional with more than two decades of experience in the field. He has worked for many organisations and his client list includes the likes of VISA, Nationwide, Central Government, the BBC and the Ministry of Defence.
He says: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you have a computer system then there is someone out there trying to break in to it. The proof? Just read the newspapers or watch the news. Every week, it seems, that this organisation has suffered a data breach or that one has been hit by some kind of cyber-attack.
“So it probably no surprise to discover that your business is under constant attack. It is also probably true that when you think of information security you think of the cost, time and expertise required to solve some of these problems. Which means everyone needs to think about information security if you are to avoid hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons.”
This free Discuss and Do event aims to give you a general overview of the main tactics these attackers use and how you can take simple, inexpensive steps to protect yourself and your business.
Please bring along a tablet or smartphone because Rik will have some exercises for you and a smart phone will not be the best thing to use!
