50% of all crime is fraud. 

80% of that is digital fraud. 

In recent years, more remote and hybrid working has exacerbated the risk of cyber-attacks.

Sadly, it’s now not about ‘if’ but ‘when’ cybercrime knocks on the door of your business. 


Many small businesses believe they have nothing of value to offer to cyber criminals and, more often than not, do not have the resources to put any cyber security policies and training in place. However, this can leave staff exposed as their frontline defence against cybercrime. 


Leading our October event will be Detective Superintendent Andy Richardson and Detective Inspector Chris White of the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East (SECRC). 

SECRC is a police-led, not-for-profit partnership between academia and businesses and is part of a new nationwide network working to boost cyber resilience amongst SMEs and micro-businesses which are deemed to be the most unlikely to afford support and yet suffer the greatest impacts of a cyber-attack.  

A presentation will be followed by an interactive panel question and answer session, for which we also welcome Bill Orme from Nine23, and Tom Chapman from the University of Southampton Business School. 

All Southampton Science Park Lunch & Learn sessions are free for any business manager or senior marketer to attend: you do not need to be a resident company. What better way to spend your lunchbreak than learning something new or brush up on your knowledge? Register now.

* This event supports Southampton Science Park’s charity for 2022, Jane Scarth House. On registration, you will have an opportunity to donate £5 for your ticket, all of which will go to the charity.
