If your business has a computer, you are at risk.

Businesses in North Wales are facing real and potentially devastating risks from e-Crime, while new threats are emerging with increasing regularity.

Why does it affect me?

The majority of businesses may be confident that their existing IT security precautions - invariably based on conventional, off-the-shelf anti-virus and firewall solutions - will provide them with sufficient protection from all significant online security threats. But, the fact remains that thousands of businesses every year still fall victim to e-Crime, despite having such precautions in place.

These sessions will outline some of the different scams identity thieves may attempt in order to illicit information from unsuspecting individuals. We will look at several ways to improve your protection against identity theft and fraud and will discuss the ways you can check to see whether you have been targeted by identity thieves as well as what to do if you are a victim of identity theft.

Can you afford to miss this One Day School?

The event will be held through the medium of English.
