Online criminals who prey on businesses is focus of tech summit

Chester Zoo will play host to a summit aiming to help businesses learn new skills on how to deal with predatory cyber attacks.

Soaring numbers of companies are now being targeted by online criminals with cyber crime costing the economy £27bn a year.

Now, in a bid to try and help businesses in the region, the Connectus Group, which provides industry-leading solutions in this area, will be hosting an event at the Atrium in Chester Zoo on March 7.

Roy Shelton, CEO of the Connectus Group, said: “Cyber crime is growing at an alarming rate and no company, regardless of its size or sector, is safe from a cyber-attack.

“All companies store, access and are dependent on information – be it customer details, staff data, payroll logs , financial accounts, sensitive design information or matters relating to intellectual property.

“Without it, companies cease to trade, and not handling it properly leaves them open to litigation claims from customers, supply chain partners, their staff and others.

“Last month, the government issued new guidelines to help directors and business leaders boost their cyber resilience.

“It urged firms to consider cyber threats as a critical business risk just as they would with financial or legal challenges. But, sadly, many businesses are still ill-prepared.”

The event will be supported by its partners Brigantia, will support Chester Business Club Members and is restricted to 60 guests, providing ample opportunity to make connections and enjoy an informative event.
