North Wales Police, together with the Police and Crime Commissioner for the region, are coordinating a free event for business owners to assist them in safeguarding their enterprises from cybercrime.

The event, Cyber Security North Wales, will take place at Wrexham Glyndwr University on 14 June.

Cyber security has become a pressing concern for businesses, and many owners find the subject daunting.

The event will bring together key organisations and speakers to discuss simple measures that businesses can take to defend themselves online.

Participants will include the National Cyber Security Centre, Welsh Government’s Cyber Resilience Team, North-West Regional Organised Crime Unit, North Wales Police Cyber Crime Team, Cyber Wales, Cyber Resilience Centre for Wales, Police Cyber Alarm, and Get Safe Online.

The day’s schedule includes keynote talks, an exhibition area, and interactive afternoon workshops designed to help delegates secure their businesses against cybercrime.

Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales, Andy Dunbobbin, urged business owners to book their places, noting that cybercrime is a rapidly growing area of criminality that he is determined to combat in the region.

Cybercrime Detective Constable Roheryn Evans of North Wales Police said: “Cyber can be a daunting prospect for small or medium-sized business owners and is often the last thing on people’s minds when they’re busy running their operations.”

“Business owners most likely haven’t got anybody to help when it comes to computers, or there may be a friend they can call to help once in a while.”

“What does the word Cyber even mean? We want this event to demystify cyber and help business owners understand what the risks are, and the first steps people need to take to protect themselves and their business.”

“Importantly, we want business owners to know that there are people who can help. If you use an email to stay in touch with your clients or suppliers, use social media apps to promote your business, or you’ve set up a website to sell on the Internet, this event is for you!”

When: 14 June, 2023, arrival 9:00 start 9.30-16.00

Where: Wrexham Glyndŵr University
