Cyber Security For Your Small Business: Webinar

About this event

Who is this Webinar for?

This webinar is aimed at start-up businesses and those who are interested in creating a start-up, no prior experience needed.

It could also benefit more established businesses that are looking at security as a business differentiator, to learn how it can be used to win new business.


83% of small and medium-sized businesses are not financially prepared to recover from a cyber attack -  which could mean going out of business.

This event aims to introduce start-ups and new businesses to the risks they face and provide top tips on how to avoid some common threats, protect their organisation and enable them to win new business and gain stakeholder support.

Your host Jim Wright will introduce security, how it can benefit businesses and allow them to seize opportunities while minimising risk. Jim will also discuss common frameworks and fundamental principles that business leaders should know from the start of their business venture.

By the end of this webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand security risks
  • Understand the benefits of security
  • Have an awareness of threat actors
  • Have an awareness of threat vectors
  • Have an awareness of the services that can be offered to support start-ups
