Cyboar, the newest member of DSM Group, delivered a highly successful Cyber Security workshop at the recent Business Resilience Forum event on 4 October.

Delegates were astonished by how much information can be harvested in order to specifically target certain companies and individuals, and the ingenious methods that cyber criminals use to trick their way into capturing highly sensitive data such as user names and passwords for online transaction sites.

The workshop included several demonstrations of live hacks on systems to explain how cyber criminals exploit vulnerabilities within the infrastructure of an organisation.  Cyboar used a number of tools to analyse the security of some selected organisations and generate reports recommending appropriate action to improve both system security and staff awareness of the importance of things such as use of strong passwords, two factor authentication, application of software patches and configuration of firewalls.

Anyone who missed the event but would like to learn more about how they can improve defence against this growing threat should contact Cyboar on 03333 221100 or email sales@cyboar.co.uk.
