The Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire and his team are working with FSB and other partners to provide advice and guidance for businesses across Lincolnshire about cyber-security.
The ever present threat to businesses from cyber-crime has become a major concern locally so it is important that ways to mitigate the risks are provided. Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Stuart Tweedale is leading on the funding and delivery of three Cyber-Security events with support from FSB, training organisation Lagat, Nat West and the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub.
The first Cyber-Security Breakfast event took place recently and was hosted by North Kesteven District Council in Sleaford. Over 50 delegates booked on and the feedback was excellent, especially as the guest speakers were using real life examples to help describe the risks, outcomes and solutions.
The initiative is based on the delivery of three separate events in locations that ensure good county coverage. The next event will be a conference at The Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa on Friday 15 June from 8.45am to 2.30pm.
Up to two places per business are available, free of charge. Following the welcome by Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones there will be presentations by Victoria Atkins MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State (Home Office) and Chief Constable for Derbyshire, Peter Goodman plus a comprehensive programme of technical speakers providing advice and guidance on cyber-security issues. Booking for the conference which includes lunch and networking is via Eventbrite using the following Link: Please book your place here.
The third event will be another Cyber-Security Breakfast at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing in Holbeach on Friday 7 September 2018. Details and booking links will be published nearer the date so please keep reading your Friday weekly editions of FSB Business Bitesize.
