The threat of cyber attack continues to be a very real one for businesses big and small - now a free workshop aims to help firms protect themselves from malicious threats.
To be held at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus, in conjunction with the Cyber Readiness Institute (CRI), a global security programme for businesses in Washington DC, the event will deliver a practical hands-on workshop to support businesses in addressing business culture, behaviour and technology to protect themselves against online attack.
Among the experts taking part will be CRI's managing director Kiersten Todt and the university's Professor Shujun Li, director of the Kent Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Cyber Security.
The CRI includes companies such as Microsoft, Acer, Maersk, MasterCard and Exxon Mobil all of which want to ensure their supply chains and networks are fully prepared for any future cyber threat that has the potential to affect their business, their clients and their clients’ businesses.
Taking place on Thursday, March 28, the event will start with networking at the Gulbenkian Cafe followed by the workshop at 6.30pm.
Tickets are free. For details visit.
