Cyber Security Conference 2015It’s almost time for the 2015 Cyber Security Conference, an event that allows you to learn how to better protect yourself and your company from cyber crime, hacking and telecommunications fraud.

What is the Cyber Security Conference?

The Cyber Security Conference 2015 (CSC 2015) is an event that takes place on the 23rd and 24th of March and sees the North of England’s two most successful Cyber Security Conferences come together: the BEC Information & Data Security Conference and Lancaster University’s North West Cyber Security Conference.

With the introduction of smarter and more connected technology, it’s more important now than ever before to make sure your company is protecting personal and commercial information from cyber criminals. It’s easy to believe that it doesn’t apply to you because you’re a small business or maybe the opposite, that it’s less likely to happen to you as a large corporation but the true message is that it can happen to any company, regardless of size.

With cyber crime and data breaches on the rise, it’s imperative that your company is protected and secure. There has been an increase in the number of employees in the information security sector as companies are changing their perception about data security.

Organisations are also beginning to change their focus towards their supply chains as this has become a larger threat in terms of cyber crime and is a threat to their business continuity and disaster recovery.

Whilst you might be confident that you are doing everything needed to prevent cyber crime, there is evidence to say that most data breaches and cyber crimes are down to poor information security. It shows that there is a big difference between thinking you’re protected and knowing that you’re protected based on professional advice.

It goes without saying that information security will be new to many but there are frameworks and guides available that can help you and your company ensure that you are doing everything in your power to prevent cyber criminals and hackers.

The aim of the Cyber Security Conference 2015 is to bring forward thinking Cyber Security experts to one place and then give them the opportunity to showcase their ideas about current issues and help teach you the best solutions to keep your company safe from emerging issues and crime.

It’s a great opportunity to make sure that you stay secure and don’t end up in legal battles or with huge fines because your security was lacking when someone decided to hack in and steal confidential information.

Cyber crime is a particular worry for legal firms and accounting firms due to the highly sensitive nature of the data they work with. But even for every other professional firm out there, cyber crime can be devastating and can sting you in so many ways – through fraud, hacking, telecommunications fraud, data theft etc etc.

Attending this free conference is a great opportunity to get advice on how best to prevent cyber criminals and fraudsters.

The conference will be of advantageous to those working in a range of industries, including but not limited to: Legal Practices, Accountancy Firms, Insurance Brokers, Personal Information Suppliers, Nuclear Suppliers, Public Sector Suppliers, NHS Suppliers, Engineering, Schools, Colleges, and Wholesalers.

Concert will be attending the conference to help advise businesses and show them how to protect themselves from cyber crime.
