DCS to host Cyber Security Workshop

Boston Spa-based Deans Computer Services (DCS) has announced the launch of a Cyber Security Workshop featuring presentations from its in-house experts, various security specialists and the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Cyber Crime Unit.

The seminar is free-to-attend and taking place between 9.30am and 12pm on Tuesday 16th October at Boston Lodge, the company’s head office. DS Shelton Newsham of the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit will provide expert guidance on the latest cyber threats and the potential vulnerability of online information. The event will also include presentations from InfoSec, a leading authority on cyber security awareness training, and ESET on data encryption, anti-virus and anti-phishing.

Mackenzie Dallas from insurance brokers, T L Dallas, will provide advice on cyber security insurance. DCS Technical Director, Chris Lord, and DCS Cloud Services Manager, Adam Findlay, will be showcasing the company’s new cloud and on-premise backup solution, Amber Vault, together with other DCS cloud services.

Chris Lord said: “Cybercrime is constantly growing and evolving. It has become vital for companies of all sizes to keep up to speed with the latest developments, especially SMEs who don’t have the in-house expertise or resources to counter it. Our Cyber Security Workshop is designed for those kinds of businesses. The content will be most valuable to companies with between 10 and 200 employees. It’s an opportunity to tap into the knowledge and experience of a range of professionals who have spent years tackling cybercrime. Companies will be able to learn what tools are available to help them protect against ransomware, hacking and other criminal online activities.

“We have hosted a number of these workshops in the past and they are always extremely popular. Businesses must register to attend with seating provided on a first-come first-served basis. Refreshments and a light lunch will also be provided.”
