We have John Greenwood, Cyber Security Advisor of the Specialist Crime and Intelligence, Protective Services Command.

The Norfolk & Suffolk constabularies offer several free services to support local organisations improve their cyber security with the aim of reducing the likelihood of them failing victim to a cyber-attack and limiting the impact and improving their resilience if they were a victim.

These free support elements are:

• Host Lego Decisions and Disruptions roleplaying game to raise awareness of the importance of cyber security to business decision makers (up to 8 people at a time) [around 1 hour] – can be run online

• Complete a Cyber Basics Review of your organisations IT against areas (which are in line with Cyber Essentials) from this we create a report for you which would identify recommendations

• Signpost to nationally approved resources

• Provide staff training and awareness session around cyber security [50 minutes to 90 minutes]

b escape room to help participants understand how their Cyber security and digital footprint could put them at risk (in person, 4/5 people per “room” up to 6 rooms available) [50 mins with very quick debrief]

• Scenario based exercising around different areas of cyber security. Participants are given information about an attack on their fictitious organisation and must identify what is happening and what steps they could take. At each stage of the scenario more information about the attack is revealed.

About this Event

This workshops will combine elements of the about and will include a Cyber Escape Room followed by a debrief and general business cyber awareness.

The session includes basic introduction to the following threat areas:
