Cyber Essentials and the Five Controls that you can put in place. Join us for this month's essential Cyber Security update.

Event details

Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government backed scheme that will help you to protect your business, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber-attacks.  Cyber-attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are basic in nature, carried out by relatively unskilled individuals.  They are the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it is unlocked. 

If you want to get more information from the experts, then join the next online Lincolnshire Cyber Security Forum.

This is a free session in which we will be focusing on Cyber Essentials System Access & Passwords.  It is open to all, so early registration is recommended.
