Video Launched to help SMEs tackle #cybercrime
Produced in conjunction with the West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit thanks to funding from the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner and West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioners’ joint business and cybercrime fund, the video explains in depth the threats businesses face from cyber criminals, what to do if they suffer an attack and top tips for preventing becoming victim.
The five-part learning resource was launched to around 100 businesses from across the West Midlands at the Cyber-security Information Sharing Partnership conference today (Thursday 11th February) at Jaguar Land Rover at Castle Bromwich in Birmingham.
Cyber security is an issue that all businesses need to take heed of. While large corporations employ teams of specialist to help them (and even then are still vulnerable to attack) that’s not always a practical option for smaller firms and sole traders.
The Cyber-Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP), part of CERT-UK, is a joint industry and government initiative to share cyber threat and vulnerability information in order to increase overall situational awareness of the cyber threat and therefore reduce the impact on UK business. CiSP allows members from across sectors and organisations to exchange cyber threat information in real time, on a secure and dynamic environment, whilst operating within a framework that protects the confidentiality of shared information.
