It’s reported that almost 46% of businesses and over 26% of charities across the UK suffered Cyber Security breaches or attacks in the past 12 months alone! The good news is that 97% of these breaches could have been prevented through the adoption of some simple measures.

This series of three masterclasses will teach you how to review and strengthen your cyber security measures through the application of a series of simple tools and techniques produced by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). More specifically the application of the NCSC tools will help you to:

• find out how resilient you are to Cyber-Attacks;

• practice responses in a safe environment; and

• have a clear and actionable plan to strengthen your organisation.
