Tips on being cyber secure are being offered in a series of free workshops for businesses, charities and education establishments.
Three workshops organised by the Eastern Cyber Resilience Centre (ECRC) will be held in one day next month at the Cresset Centre in Peterborough, running from 9am to 3.30pm on Wednesday, 6 October.
The three sessions are split into:
- Cyber security for small businesses
- Cyber security for charities and community interest companies
- Cyber security for education organisations
Each session will be tailored to the specific industry and will provide guidance and considerations on resilience if faced with a cyber-attack. There will also be practical tasks on the day.
Nigel Sutton, the force’s cyber security officer, and Detective Inspector Fiona Bail will also share advice on the free tools available to businesses, charities and education organisations to identify any cyber-related issues.
The topics covered will include:
- Why cyber crime is important for every business, even the small ones
- Free tools and services available for businesses
- Fundamental considerations for cyber resilience
- Case study: Peterborough Workspace has an internal vulnerability scan
