BRAVE offers free workshop to help small firms beat the cyber criminals

October 10, 2018

A free cyber security workshop for small firms is being staged next week by Bristol business support organisation Brave Enterprise as police warn that SMEs are being targeted by online criminals.

The presentation on Wednesday, October 17, will teach small business owners how to protect themselves from the latest online threats. It is being presented by Joanne Bocko of Avon and Somerset Police. 

Joanne said: “Cyber criminals have identified that SMEs are a highly lucrative target due to the limited investment and resources available for cyber security compared to corporations and multi-nationals.

“As cyber protect officer, the main part of my role is to increase awareness as to the tricks criminals utilise and to strengthen businesses resilience to cybercrime.”

The presentation, at BRAVE’S offices in Upper York Street, will inform businesses on the following topics:

  • Personal and business security
  • Latest trends, threats and vulnerabilities
  • Business fraud
  • Telephone, text and email scams
  • Latest password management

To book a place on the workshop visit  or phone 0117 944 5330.
