Why should you join?
Every year, businesses lose millions of pounds to fraudsters and criminals are becoming ever more sophisticated and can spend hours researching you and your business to perform a credible scam.
Whether you use email, phones, social media or online banking within your business, the internet and digital era has been crucial for the success of many businesses today. As a small to medium business, you may not consider yourself to be a likely target. However in the last year, one in three UK businesses suffered some form of online crime.
By attending this event, you can aim to increase your understanding of fraud threats and risks, ask questions, and take steps to protect yourself and your business.
Join us on Wednesday 19th July from 2pm-4pm for coffee & cake!
