Member Venue: Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy the centre for the sport of sailing on the Isle of Portland, Dorset.
Kindly Sponsored by WPCC member IT Support 365 Ltd with James Bull presenting on Cyber Crime Prevention with our guest speaker Jake Moore from the Dorset Police Cyber Crime Prevention Unit.

All the cyber wisdom you need
Louise Matthews from IT 365 says “Cyber Crime is now one of the biggest threats to your business and you can’t rely on a single solution to prevent an attack. Because digital systems now touch every part of your organisation it is essential you have multi-layered protection in place including effective perimeter security, comprehensive endpoint security and a regular and reliable back-up routine. In addition, it pays to have a plan of action for dealing with the most common forms of cybercrime, should you be affected. Knowing how to respond to say, a ransomware attack, can help you minimise the disruption and help your business to continue operating.”
Jake Moore will point out: “While you shouldn’t be afraid to make the most of the cyber world, your online safety shouldn’t be taken for granted or assumed either. Few people really understand the risks that can affect you online, but equally, few people are aware of how easy it is to manage these risks to prevent themselves from becoming victims of cyber-crime.
“Computers and smart phones shouldn’t be scary if you are equipped with the knowledge of how to protect yourself online and I am looking forward to sharing this information with Dorset communities as I work within this new role.”
