Free Event In Fermanagh And Omagh! Workshop on Cyber Security

As part of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s continued commitment to supporting businesses in the area, the Economic Development department have scheduled a FREE two hour workshop on Cyber Security.

Date:  Thursday 28th September 2017
Time:  6pm – 8pm
Location:  Omagh Enterprise Company, Great Northern Road, Omagh, BT78 5LU will provide a jargon free information session outlining the myths and reality of cyber security for small businesses, covering the following:

  • an outline of why and how small businesses are at risk;
  • the main threats explained in Plain English – Viruses/spyware/malware, phishing, hacking, ransomware, data theft, careless or malicious insiders, unsecure devices and the Internet of Things;
  • the real impacts of cyber attack – loss of data, business disruption, reputational and brand damage, loss of customers, decreased revenue, jeopardising compliance, fines/legal costs;
  • the simple, cost effective measures that can be put in place in any business to mitigate against cyber attack, for example the “Wannacry” global attack that impacted the NHS among other organisations worldwide;
  • and an introduction to the new European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) due to be introduced in May 2018.

The workshop will be highly interactive, with demonstrations and real life relevant examples.  There will be an opportunity for businesses to take an online assessment of the cyber security of their business; and there will be plenty of “take aways” such as links to key resources; trial versions of relevant software products etc.
