As part of their Cyber Sense On Tour programme, we are delighted to announce that Highlands and Islands Enterprise will host a Cyber Sense session exclusively for Highland Business Women. Sponsored by HIE the event is free of charge and places are limited to 30.
Location: #hellodigital, An Lochran, 10 Inverness Campus, Inverness, IV2 5NA
09:00 Tea/Coffee and networking
09:30 - 10:30 Cyber Sense Interactive Game
Are you game?
This session will focus on “Phishing”. We'll teach the anatomy of phishing emails in an interactive competitive environment and allow the audience to create their own.
These are real threats and real people and businesses are getting caught out every day. Recent media coverage about Highland based organisations suffering losses due to scammers brings this reality home. As hackers get more sophisticated, we all need to know how to spot the threats.
The game is the result of a successful Government funded program around the high schools of Scotland during the first quarter of 2018. Its purpose is to use a fusion of technology and teaching to allow audiences to experience aspects of cyber attacks, learn to spot them and assume the role of an attacker to better protect themselves and their organisations.
Register through Eventbrite. The 30 places will be allocated on a first come first-served basis so book early to avoid disappointment. If you book a place and then find you are unable to attend please, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel and free the spot up for someone else.
If you can't make this event don't worry. There may be an alternative one that you can catch. For details of other dates visit http://www.hellodigital.scot/e....
