Why do you need this?

The threat of cyber theft, identity fraud and hacking is more real than ever before. It can prove expensive to come back from, ruin your reputation, and delay plans, deals and customer purchases while it is being fixed. So if there’s one question every business should be asking then it’s ‘How safe is my data?’ And if there’s a second question then it’s ‘Are my employees doing business securely enough?’

In this one-day hands-on session, our sharp, young trainers will show just how easy it is to become a victim of hacking. Participants will learn from cautionary case studies, role-plays and expert tuition, gaining usable tactics to diagnose and defend against the threats. This thought-provoking, engaging and enjoyable day will leave you with a ‘what cyber security can do for me’ mindset to make your online existence as secure as it can be.

The Freeforming doesn’t end in the workshop. We’ll keep you up to date with the latest digital developments – and for every business person we train, we train a young person for free. So your place will fuel the digital ambition of an aspiring young person.
