The event, which takes place on February 24, is the first of its kind and aims to give local businesses the guidance they need to enable them to protect their business from cyber-attack.
It will also help shape the force’s business crime strategy and will include presentations from national industry experts.
Detective Constable Neil Cahalin, a digital media Investigator at the force’s cyber crime unit, has organised the event. He said: “It is absolutely crucial that businesses across the county understand the importance of cyber security. “Cyber-attack can be ruinous and can even lead to bankruptcy.”
Speakers include a senior executive from IBM, who will assess the risks facing businesses all over the world. Delegates will also hear from Northamptonshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Adam Simmonds and Deputy Chief Constable Martin Jelley.
They will also hear about the latest software technology available to avert cyber attack.
The conference runs from 9.15am to 4.15pm. To register your place, e-mail CyberCrimeUnit@northants.pnn.police.uk
