Trading Securely – Scottish Business Resilience – FREE Event

Posted in: Events

Your business has an online persona and it’s highly likely that you do too. It’s also highly likely that you or your business may one day be the subject of an online attack. The Scottish Business Resilience Centre aims to help you avoid that attack or, at the very least, ensure that no valuable information is compromised when an attack is attempted against you. Our aim is to make Scotland a safe and secure place to do business which is why we are delighted to be invited by Mclaughlin & Harvey to advise you on trading securely.

Our ethical hacking students will cover a number of steps that can be taken to help secure your business and personal life online. They will start with the why and how of updating your devices and then cover what and how you should encrypt and backup and data protection. From there the students will move on to what makes a good passphrase, how they can be managed and the wonders of two factor authentication. Next they will discuss phishing with a brief on how you can attempt to identify phishing emails and websites. The session will finish with a section on social media and how it can be used against you.

The Scottish Business Resilience Centre is a unique organisation comprising contributions and secondments from Police Scotland, Scottish Government, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, major banks, industries, investors and private membership.  We aim to provide our members with a wide ranging one stop shop for business security services and advice and to date have established ourselves as a hub of innovation and business improvement in support of our partners and the business community.
