We are calling all businesses, including Parish and Town Councils, to attend this FREE course and benefit from understanding cyber threats and online fraud. 

Devon Communities Together is working with Devon and Cornwall Police to develop free training courses to help VCSE organisations and Devon Parish and Town Council staff and Councillors to understand online threats and how to protect business data, money and reputation.

The General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) will come into effect in 2018. It will change how organisations can collect, use and transfer personal data.

The course will undertake to develop awareness and understanding on the issues listed below.

Attendees will depart with improved knowledge and the information/support to enable action in their own workplace to mitigate risk.

  • Digital (Cyber) crime – an overview of what it is, how it impacts on SME and what you can do to mitigate the risk.
  • How to recognise some of the more common cyber threats and information on the steps to take to reduce the chances that they will happen.
  • Policy and procedure considerations for your business and staff who work within it.
  • Understanding rules around legal requirements for collecting and using personal data.
  • Advice on procedures in the event of digital data breaches
  • New Data Protection legislation – The General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) 
  • The secure transmission of documents and integrity of email correspondence.

With cyber security often in the news today, the training will also frame your online safety in the context of the wider world.
