Scrub up: will the future of work require better cyber security hygiene?

Share your cyber security challenges and gain expert insight from the Institute of Cyber Security for Society at our upcoming workshop at Ashford Business Point on 17 May.

As businesses increasingly introduce flexible and hybrid working policies, more of us are turning to multiple devices, networks and locations to facilitate our work. Whilst beneficial to employees, it can expose them and the businesses they work for to cyberattacks.

Data from the UK Government’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows 65 per cent of medium-sized businesses have experienced at least one cyberattack in the past 12 months. That’s why we’re working together with the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce to give your business the opportunity to discuss cyber security concerns and experiences in a dynamic round-table discussion. You’ll be joined by us, the Chamber and other forward-thinking businesses all looking to deliver to the needs of the region.

The workshop is part of a wider series of themed ‘We Are Listening’ sessions through which we are listening to businesses in the region to find out what expertise and business support could help them to increase business productivity and growth. The event is free to attend so we strongly encourage you to come along and play your part in helping to shape the future of business in Kent and Medway.
