See your website hacked live at St Andrews Business Club!

How easily can your business website be hacked?

Business people are being invited to find out in front of their very eyes at the next free open evening meeting of St Andrews Business Club on March 15.

Leading ethical hackers and cyber security lecturers, Colin McLean and Dr Natalie Coull from Abertay University, will invite attendees to volunteer their site for the live demonstration of the vulnerabilities of websites before going on to share how you can avoid becoming the next victim of the cyber menace.

In 2006, Colin developed the BSc in Ethical Hacking at Abertay University - the world’s first undergraduate degree with the word “hacking” in the title - and was listed in the Top 100 people driving the digital agenda in Scotland by Holyrood magazine. Natalie, who gained her PhD from St Andrews University, teaches a range of subjects from programming to ethical hacking and last year won the Outstanding Woman in Cyber award at the inaugural Scottish Cyber Awards.

Colin and Natalie be joined by Susan Riccio from PIB Insurance Brokers, who will give a presentation on Cyber Risk and Data Breach Insurance and how it can help you manage the risks and any breach, should it occur.

Theirs will be the second evening talk of the new term, to be held at the New Golf Club from 5.30pm, and business people are invited to join club members and their guests for it as well as networking, sandwiches and hot and cold drinks. Anyone wishing to do can book free on Eventbrite via the link
