Cyber-Security Breakfast Meet-ups for SMEs (Aberdeen)

Date(s) - 19/06/2015
All Day

Beach Ball Room

Cyber Security is a Tier1 Security threat to the UK Government and industry is in the front line when it comes to attacks from inside and outside the firewalls. No company is immune to the threat presented by employees, ideological attacks, organised crime and nation states.  IP theft and reputational damage are the two biggest threats that face industry of all sizes.

The lecture series will introduce you to a community of like minded individuals and help you to improve your company’s reslience and mitigate threats and ensure you are always aware of the latest threats. These events are made possible through the help of Scottish Enterprise, SICSA and Scottish Government and done in partnership with the SBRC (Scottish Business Resilience Centre).

The times will always be 0800 – 0900
