Surrey Chambers of Commerce in association with Natwest invite you to this free seminar
This seminar is designed to help businesses be more aware of and reduce the prevailing threats they face including malware, phishing and vishing. Attendees have the chance to listen to professionals from the Bank who specialise in cybercrime awareness. 
The topics to be covered are: 

  • Scams – methods such as executive impersonation emails (“bogus boss”), that can result in employees paying away significant sums 
  • Phishing – fake but realistic emails that trick you in to disclosing confidential information
  • Vishing (voice phishing) – criminals impersonate bank staff, the police and other professionals over the phone in order to obtain your bank details or deceive you in to executing payments
  • Financial malware – a virus specifically designed to steal funds from your bank account
  • Ransomware - encrypts your business critical data, with the criminal then demanding a ransom payment to restore that data
  • Best practices for defending against all of these threats
  • Interactive Q&A and live audience polls.
