Cyber attacks and threats from cyberspace have become increasingly prevalent and newsworthy. Sophisticated fraudsters are infiltrating companies’ control systems and networks for their own gain. To prevent potentially catastrophic harm, companies need to be increasingly vigilant to meet this threat.

How is your company vulnerable? How can your company’s network be exploited? In this masterclass we will be considering these questions and what steps can be taken to minimise the current cyber threat. We will hear from both the public and private sectors, with a leading figure from the global information security industry – Jason Hart, CTO, Gemalto Data Protection – and a current DI from the West Yorkshire Police – DI Geoff Halpin – who occupies a role in the Yorkshire & Humber Regional Cybercrime Unit.

The masterclass is free for YHFF and other Fraud Forum members.
