Cyber Security: Addressing the threats for your business

Wednesday 30th November 2016

University of Huddersfield, 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, 2/29, 16:00 to 19:00



The University of Huddersfield and Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire are pleased to organise this free-to-

attend Cyber Security workshop at the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre on Wednesday 30th November 2016

between 16:00 to 19:00.


The continuous evolution of cyber threats poses great risks for all businesses and organisations using IT

infrastructures. Cyber-crime is a multi-billion pound industry and no business can afford to ignore the

threats. This workshop provides a background to the cyber-security landscape and highlights best practises

which can help mitigate potential threats. Talks will be given from organisations facing cyber-security

challenges, as well as from organisations providing solutions.

During this workshop, attendees can network with other local businesses facing cyber-security challenges,

as well as those providing solutions. In addition, the University will also provide information on

Government and University funding initiatives to support regional businesses in improving their cyber-

security provisions.


The University is offering a free follow-up visit to SMEs in the Leeds City Region where a cyber-security

expert will visit your company to assist in assessing cyber-security threats and providing knowledge.
