Manufacturing Connect at Samworth Brothers

Cyber Security - a real threat

Learn how cyber security impacts your business and what steps you can take to protect yourself at this East Midlands event.

Our Manufacturing Connect events are hosted at manufacturers' facilities and include a factory tour, enabling best practice and information sharing with your peers.

Recent cyber-attacks have had significant financial and reputational implications for some of the world’s most sophisticated businesses. UK Manufacturers are not immune from the threat.

It is estimated that nearly 50% of UK firms lack advanced cyber defences and the cost of cyber security incidents to March 2016 was put at £34.1bn. Even the most robust defences can be breached.

Hear from Howden, EEFs Insurance partner, who will take you through a possible mock attack and what the incident response would be; learn how your business can protect itself from a Cyber Attack and what actions you need to take.

Hear from EEF on the outputs of our recent research, the implications on your business and possible actions to mitigate.

Our hosts Samworth Brothers will provide an introduction to the company, with a site tour and an update on the food & drink sector of distribution networks.

  • You are responsible for creating and deploying a strategy to protect your organisation from Cyber Threat
  • You are a business leader, wanting to understand the threat of a Cyber-attack and the implications on your business
