Cyber Security for SMEs

Online Webinar Roundtable

Who we are

This online Cybersecurity for SMEs webinar aims to help Britain’s small business community gain a better understanding of what cybersecurity means, the threats that exist, and what can be done to keep our data, our businesses, and our people safe.

Cybersecurity has become a familiar concept to all business owners in the digital age. Record-breaking data breaches have populated the headlines over recent years, with some of the world’s most resource-wealthy business names falling victim to data thieves, or being found guilty of malpractice that has led to the exposure or misuse of private information.

Against such high-profile turmoil, SME owners might think that their company would be of little interest to online criminals; that they are too small, or somehow off the radar.

Nothing could be further from the truth. According to research by Vodafone, 4 in 10 SMEs went through some form of cyberattack over the past 12 months, with 20% or more experiencing six or more attacks.

The average cost of a cyberattack stands at £3,230 – more than enough to put many smaller firms out of business.

In this session, hosted by Joe Tidy is the BBC’s first dedicated Cyber-security with a panel of experts, we will discuss:

  • The cyber-security landscape for SMEs
  • Working from home: the ‘new normal’
  • SME security: what does best practice look like now?
  • Incident response
  • Data minimisation
  • Creating a cybersecurity culture
