On February 28th, The Humber Business Resilience Forum exhibited at the recent Inaugural Yorkshire and Humber Cyber Protect Business Conference in Leeds. Organised by the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime Unit, this event was well attended.
The audience were treated to a presentation from Matthew Callahan from United States Secret Service who synergised cyber-crime issues between the US and the UK and shared preventative measures. The theme of the day was urging businesses and law enforcement to interact and increased awareness and intelligence of cyber-crime issues. The audience was made up of a small, medium enterprises from around Yorkshire and Humber region, law enforcement, police partners and industry and academic partners.
With cybercrime being an ever-increasing threat to the UK public, businesses and government, the event was excellent for increasing awareness or cybercrime, its threat and how to protect businesses in the Yorkshire region from potential crimes.
