With cyber attacks on small businesses on the rise, it's important to protect your business, your data and your reputation.
Attacks can be highly sophisticated and very hard to spot. Whilst insuring your business against any breaches is important, you should not forget the basics: raising company-wide awareness and training your staff. By empowering your staff to spot attempted attacks before they happen, you could potentially save thousands of pounds and reduce the risk of damaging your reputation and losing your business.
The importance of your staff being security aware and cyber resilient cannot be understated and this is why we've been offering free memberships and training to businesses across the region since 2019.
The North West Cyber Resilience Centre is a trusted, not-for-profit, police-led organisation. We provide education, testing and training to help businesses within our region protect themselves from online attacks.
