Why you should be interested

Because any business can be attacked at any time now. Sadly, as cyber crime has become more sophisticated and widespread, it is more a question of when rather than if your business is going to be attacked. What would happen to your business if you have a cyber attack? Here are a few outcomes:

. Loss of valuable and sensitive data.
. Disruption that could take down your business.
. Having to tell clients and other stakeholders what has happened.
. Potential fine by regulators like Information Commissioner’s Office – and others (especially if you’re in a regulated business like Financial Services, Accountancy, Law and Energy).
. Loss of reputation and – in some cases – your entire business.

What you get out of it

When you complete the workshop you will have:

. Written a Cyber Incident Response Plan for your business to use in the event of a cyber attack.
. Learnt who needs to be involved and what they need to do.
. Found out who will need to be notified.
. Discovered what steps must be taken and in what order if you experience a cyber attack.

Surrey children’s charity, The Eikon Charity, has secured a limited number of spaces in both the London Marathon and Virtual London Marathon, taking place on Sunday 2nd October 2022. This year, there are two ways that you can enjoy the iconic London Marathon race and give children in Surrey a safe place to turn. You can join over 50,000 runners in the streets of Central London or tackle 26.2 miles at your own pace, on a course that suits you.

All runners taking part in the iconic race for The Eikon Charity will receive expert advice along the way, fundraising support and an Eikon Charity running vest.

The Eikon Charity asks each of its runners to fundraise for either event, which will make a huge difference to children facing serious challenges, often with no one else to turn to for support.

Minimum fundraising target:
• London Marathon - £2,000
• Virtual Marathon - £300

With this money the charity can provide more one-to-one support sessions, lunch clubs, youth groups, dedicated practitioners in schools and lots of other key services which give vulnerable children the support they deserve.
