This year’s e-Crime Wales Summit was held on 21st October 2009 in Venue Cymru, Llandudno. The event equipped delegates with the knowledge and tools to combat the hi-tech criminals so they can concentrate on increasing profits through greater online activity.
New research shows a quarter of Welsh businesses suffered an e-Crime incident in the last year, some costing many thousands of pounds. Attending the Summit educated businesses on steps to take to avoid attacks and serious financial loss, disruption, theft of data or intellectual property and reputation damage.
The Summit agenda included presentations from world leading e-Security experts from international companies such as Microsoft, 7Safe, CRYPTOCard and Paypal. They gave up-to date information on the latest threats and solutions together with valuable advice on handling payments safely online.
The event was highly interactive allowing attendees to express their views on e-Crime Support and ask the questions most relevant to their business.
In addition delegates had the opportunity to visit this year’s much extended exhibition containing dozens of leading IT and e-Security organisations.
Support and advice
The newly appointed local e-Crime police officers were there to offer their expert advice and guidance. Additional support was available by picking up free e-Crime Wales guides and factsheets that give you straightforward e-Security advice.
