Cyber Awareness Workshop

Protect yourself and your business from cyber crime by attending this workshop delivered by the Lincolnshire Police Cyber Crime Unit.

Event Information

Protect yourself and your business from cyber crime by attending this workshop which will provide a non-technical overview of what you can do right now. It’s important to recognise that, statistically, cyber crime and fraud now pose a greater risk than physical crime. All businesses, from sole-traders right up to multi-nationals, need to plan for when, not if, a cyber incident occurs. 


This workshop will give you an overview on Cyber Awareness from Lincolnshire Police Cyber Crime Unit. The session will include a scenario based exercise to help you better understand how you can prepare for a cyber incident. It will include information about how criminals target us and examples of how organisations have been targeted in Lincolnshire.


There will be a focus on the following topic areas


- Social engineering

- Phishing

- Protecting your data & personal information

- Risks of free or public Wi-Fi

- Current threats

- Intro to National Cyber Security Centre resources for SMEs

- Benefits of CiSP and Cyber Essentials 


Presenters - PC Luke Casey and Harry Lancaster, Cyber Protect Officers, Lincolnshire Police Cyber Crime Unit.
