How resilient is your business when it comes to cyber security?

Are you prepared for the most important change in data protection that the digital age has seen, and what do new regulations say about cyber security requirements?

45% of small businesses identified a cyber-security breach or attack in the last 12 months. A breach can cause severe harm; undermining customer trust, disrupting operations and causing long term financial damage.

G is hosting a breakfast briefing for small businesses, covering the big cyber security questions. Come along to find out about the threat landscape and cyber resilience from Grant Thornton’s leading industry experts and CyberSmart, a VC backed cyber security startup that provides automated compliance for SMEs.
