Protecting yourself and your digital data from Cyber Criminals has become an increasing concern. As both businesses and individuals are pushed into an increasingly online presence where web-based transacting is the norm, their digital footprint can be exploited and valuable intelligence can be extracted. How can we respond?

This seminar will demonstrate how every contact leaves a trace and offer tips on reducing our online risks and better manage our digital footprint.

This seminar is provided by the Humber Business Resilience Forum that provides advice and information to individuals, businesses and organisations about digital footprints.

  • “Protect your online reputation” Norman Mortell BA (Hons) (Director, Agenda Screening Services and HBRF board member)

  • Brief comments and Q & A: Dionysios Demetis, PhD (Lecturer, University of Hull and Vice-Chair of the HBRF)
