Do you feel cyber safe?
A number of recent news stories have highlighted cases of criminals using email hacking and ransomware to access accounts belonging to Hilary Clinton and David Beckham. Data breaches from companies such as Talk-Talk, Yahoo and ABTA have also put a spotlight on the increased threat of identity theft.
But this is not just something that can happen to celebrities or big companies – cyber criminals can target any one of us.
Come along and hear local experts sharing their insights into the underworld of cybercrime, its victims and first hand advice on staying safe.
You will also hear about our University’s Cyber Security Programme and the changes being made to how we log in to some services, to keep our key systems secure from cyber criminals.
This event's guest speaker is Paul Taylor, who is an investigator working in the Greater Manchester Police Cyber Crime Team. Paul has investigated a number of denial of service attacks, website hacking and ransomware reports and will share real life experiences of cyber crime victims and the tales told by those arrested.
