Businesses are benefiting from the use of laptops, smartphones, and IoT devices which are connected to a wireless network. With all these devices connected to a single internet access point, Wi-Fi network security is critical to protect the businesses’ devices from any cyber breaches. Poor cyber hygiene could negatively affect an organisation's ability to function, reputation and legal obligations to keep personal data safe.

Who is it for:

Anyone interested in ensuring their business system network is secure, minimising the risk of cyberattacks, keeping business, client and supplier data safe. The session will cover:

• Password security

• Employee access

• Firewalls

• Anti virus set up

• Good data back up

• Mobile connections

• Secure Wi-Fi gateway router

• Hardware management

• Top cyber threats and mitigation against attacks

This is a practical, guided session and attendees will need to bring a lop top to the event.

The programme is available for SMEs across Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster, and Rotherham, as well as Chesterfield, North-East Derbyshire, Derbyshire Dales, Bolsover, and Bassetlaw.
