By Chris Britcher

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.
