Cybercrime is the ugly side of the digital age. It illegally accesses thousands of businesses and steals their data. This in turn reveals the personal and often financial information of individuals.
Cybercrime has, without doubt, absolutely devastating effects on so many people . Horrifyingly an attack on an individual's bank account can rob them of their lifetime’s savings too.
Every day you read or hear some horror story about hackers and cyber-attacks.
Understandably it can cause catastrophic damage to businesses. Indeed, earlier this month we heard about budget airline easyJet, who announced they had been hacked. The cyber-attack on them grabbed the personal information of nine million customers and the credit card information of over 2,200 customers. It happened in January but only disclosed in May 2020.
Cybercrime is now a huge issue for organisations all over the world. Apparently, there are now over one million new data breaches every hour. Furthermore, these crimes come at a huge financial burden to organisations. It may be hard to imagine but It is estimated cyber-crime costs the UK economy £27bn per annum. That is £21bn attributed to UK businesses and a terrifying £6 million to private individuals and non-commercial organisations.
The main industries effected are usually providers of software and computer services, financial services, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, and electronic and electrical equipment suppliers.
Demand for Cybercrime Speakers
Understandably we receive a lot of inquiries for a cybercrime speaker. Mostly speakers who are willing to share their expert knowledge and opinions. They also discuss new trends and developments. Increasingly companies are looking for speakers to educate and train staff to make the company more prepared and less vulnerable to attack.
More and more companies are increasingly aware they are at risk of a serious data breach. After all it only takes one careless email or click on a phishing email to cause mayhem and potential fines. The PR fallout is often hugely damaging. By hiring a first-class speaker, they can highlight the dangers and inform their employees in a more effective and dynamic manner.
