Global Business Email Compromise fraud (BEC) is expected to top £6.4 billion this year, how much do you think it might cost you?


The average is £27,000 per company


In the last year BEC fraud has increased by a massive 58% with as many as half a million SMEs coming under attack. Do your team know when to question emails claiming to be from suppliers, clients or even you? Does your business have procedures and processes in place to check large or small payment requests? Do you have an open culture within your workplace where mistakes can be recognised without fear of being fired – the reason many victims don’t report.

Cyber security has become one of the biggest business risks to all companies, large and small, with the constant threat of disruption caused by cyber crime, both targeted and random. Whilst technology companies have systems and policies in place they are often seen as a juicy target for malicious attacks, and keeping on top of this is a constant challenge.

We’ll be running a two hour session to explore cyber attacks that have already targeted Scottish businesses and provide you with mitigating strategies and tangible techniques to permanently reduce the risk to your organisation.  


You’ll hear from UK and European leader in the field David Stubley, CEO and Founder of 7 Elements, a consultancy that specialises in security testing and assurance and Graham Watson, CEO and Founder of Advanced Engagement, a company who provide bespoke security awareness training.
