There is no question that cyber attacks are on the increase, we hear about it in the news everyday but what does this actually mean for business?

For the first time we welcome security double act Ian Kerr (Founder and Managing Director) and Cary Hendricks (Global Operations Director) from Glasgow based ID Cyber Solutions to the Breakfast.

At the March event we turn our attention towards the increasing threat of cyber attacks, now one in three businesses are the subject to them…and the catastrophic consequences that an attack can have on a brand.

Ian also founded ID Inquiries Ltd in 1990 after a police career predominantly spent in the Criminal Investigation Department. He also served in the Serious Crime Squad. While Cary is a Certified Ethical Hacker, qualified Computer Forensic Investigator and Instructor for both. Cary has been involved in various different types of operations and investigations, ranging from criminal intelligence and smuggling to counterfeiting.

Their background serves them well in the fight against cyber crime, and helping businesses achieve some level of cyber security is one of their main focal points in making Scotland a safer place for business.

In March they will look at the main areas of cyber crime, how it effects businesses and provide tips on how to try and avoid them:

– Suppliers requesting Cyber Essentials as a pre-qualifier are increasing dramatically.

– Supply chains are included when your clients are bidding for contracts.

– Damage to well established brands can be detrimental.

We will also hear about what the motivational factors are to achieve a basic level of cyber hygiene in your business and the competitive advantage that can be gained when demonstrating your cyber resilience in tendering.

No business can be guaranteed 100% safe from cyber crime but there are some simple and straightforward checks we can implement to help prevent attacks moving forward, and we look forward to hearing about them on 7th March – Book Early.
