FREE cyber security support for businesses and the self-employed in Leeds City Region
The Covid-19 pandemic period has seen a 400% increase in cyber fraud, with small businesses, the self-employed and freelancers working from home most as risk.
Would your business be able to recover from a cyber-attack during this already challenging time?
If you use the internet in your organisation, you need to take precaution against:
your accounts being hacked, and your confidential data being accessed;
viruses which can hold your computers for ransom and potentially shut down your company;
fraudsters stealing your bank details and money;
phishing attempts in which criminals try to install malicious software on your devices.
The NEBRC is currently offering FREE support on behalf of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to help YOU to protect your company and build your business’ cyber resilience at a time when it matters more than ever.
If you own a business, are self-employed or freelance within the Leeds City Region you can sign up, before 31st December 2020, to claim FREE cyber security support and receive:
a thorough assessment to identify any vulnerabilities in your IT systems that could leave you open to cyber attack;
