A morning workshop on cyber-security with Optimising IT and Devon & Cornwall Police

Tuesday 30th April 2019 / 8.30am – 11am

The XCentre, Commercial Road, Exeter, EX2 4AD

Who is your weakest link?

95% of cyber-attacks start with an employee being tricked.

On Tuesday 30th April, Optimising IT’s Head of Consultancy – Todd Gifford (CISSP), and Devon & Cornwall Cyber Protect Officer – Laura Cowie, will be sharing their experiences and insights into the dark world of cybercrime. You will find out why social engineering works and even be tasked with delving into the hacker mindset. You will hear of real-life cybercrime cases and learn how to identify cyber vulnerabilities in your supply chain.

With cyber-incidents being the no.1 risk to UK business, you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of the most prevalent cyber-threats facing your organisation, how to locate cyber vulnerabilities and ultimately prevent becoming another cybercrime statistic.
