Description

Half Day Cybercrime and IT Security Event featuring Speakers and Exhibitors.

DOCK is Leicester’s new hub for high tech and innovation businesses, located next door to the National Space Centre. Business development support is offered to all tenants. As part of this programme of support, we intend to commission speakers to devise and present some interactive IT Security and Cybercrime Prevention sessions, as part of this half day event. We expect 30 – 40 business owners/interested parties to attend, with potential for some great exposure to those who will need services and support the most.

The sessions should not be traditional presentations from a textbook, but innovative practical sessions, demonstrations or hands-on experiences, so that those attending will be able to leave with something of real value for their business.

Brief for the event

We’d like to assist DOCK tenants and other existing and new start technology and innovation businesses, including those in the supply chain, to clearly understand both the risks and mitigation techniques for handling data breaches and other security issues.

We want to help individual businesses be clear in their thinking with regards to decisions about IT security for their business and to give strong pointers as to what different types of prevention are available and what further options can be considered.

The key topic areas which we believe will fulfil the event purpose are:

• Winning cyber warfare – hackers’ techniques and how to defend against them
• Password storage, encryption and decryption
• Social networking threats and how to prevent them – including social engineering and identity theft
• IT security audits and a guide to future Risk Management
