Businesses in West Mercia, will have a unique opportunity, to brush up on their knowledge around cyber crime, through an event funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner.

The free interactive sessions in Hereford, will help businesses keep themselves and their customers safe. Representatives from West Mercia Police, Cyber Quarter – Hereford Centre for Cyber and Security, Chamber of Commerce, Natwest, Suttcliffe Insurance, IASME Consortium , Marches Growth Hub – Herefordshire and Fastershire will also be on hand to offer advice, and free Smartwater packs will be provided for attendees.

Commissioner John Campion said “The internet is a great enabler for business, but also a great enabler for criminal activity. I am working to make West Mercia, a safer place to live and work, and this is just one example of how I’m enabling individuals, communities and business with the tools to help keep themselves safe. I’d encourage all businesses big or small to take advantage of this opportunity to learn from experts.”
