Martin Smith MBE, Founder and Chairman of The SASIG, and Commissioner Ian Dyson QPM, National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) Lead for Cybercrime, invited all businesses, small and large, to attend the NPCC National Business Cybercrime Conference 2021, which took place at the iconic Kia Oval in London.
The conference was free to attend and open to everybody. It was aimed at helping minimise our risk and exposure to potential cybercrime, and was a great chance to hear from law enforcement and industry experts about the emerging risks to our businesses and how we can protect ourselves against attack.
Although efforts to combat cybercrime are the ‘most joined-up bit’ of UK law enforcement, police forces cannot do it alone. Cybercrime will be defeated only through collaboration, engagement and partnership with industry and with the community.
The presentations explored the UK’s growing and evolving capability to counter cybercrime at the national, regional and local levels. The agenda (which you can download below) featured speakers from the national and regional cybercrime network as well as industry experts in cybersecurity and cybercrime prevention/detection. It was an excellent opportunity for players from all parts of the fight against cybercrime to gather and review progress.
