Cyber Attacks On The Up - Make Sure Your Business Is Secure

Cyber crime should be top of the agenda for businesses, says security expertUnderstanding the hacker workshop kicks off Fife Business Week

“With daily headlines about cyber attacks on business, no one should feel their business is safe.”  That’s the message from security expert Wynn Jones from Praetorian Security.

He said:

“There are many myths surrounding the issue of cyber crimes with most SMEs believing that hackers are only interested in credit card details and attacks on big corporations. All companies are vulnerable, but understanding the mindset of hackers can highlight where the weaknesses are in your business.”

It is thought that over 30,000 websites are hacked per day. Understanding the tactics used by hackers and what they are after means that companies can identify what they need to do to protect themselves better. Providing practical advice and information on how to do it is the theme of the free workshop in Glenrothes on 9th November, the first day of Fife Business Week. 

“Precautions don’t have to be expensive either and there will be suggestions and advice for companies to take away with them.” Jones said.
