This national FSB event will explore how best to deal with the increasing threat of Cyber Crime at this point in the Government’s roadmap now many businesses are returning to the office and a new wave of online threats is cresting.

Event details

Join us for a free 90-minute briefing – with plenty of time for interactive Q&A - which will feature a strong programme of expert guest speakers. Each will offer advice and guidance on how to guard your business against cyber-crime and ensure your policies and practice are fit for purpose after over a year of remote working. We will have a strong focus on cyber insurance to help you be sure you have the right protections in place and what coverage you need.

Our meeting will feature: 

  • Cyber Crime Insurance – All you need to know about making a claim following a cyber-attack and what is covered as part of Cyber Essentials. This will be an ideal and valuable opportunity to ask questions to our panel of experts including: Shaune Worrall of the British Insurance Brokers Association, the FSB’s Insurance Representative and Dr Jason Nurse, Associate Professor in Cyber Security, School of Computing, University of Kent and we will explore more with the Cyber Essentials Insurance Broker.     
  • Bouncing Back after COVID: This Question & Answers session will be about re-inducting staff back into the workplace, reminding them of good cyber security policies and behaviour after over a year away. It is a chance for businesses to review their operations, realign behaviour and work with staff to find ways of working that will suit ongoing flexible or home working (policies and practices that work both in and out of the office). 
  • We will also hear from Lincolnshire Police Cyber Crime Unit and national cyber-crime experts about the latest cyber-attacks and scams and those linked to the COVID-19 pandemic.
