Learn How To Prevent Cyber Attacks On Your Business With BHETA’s Webinar 

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is holding a training webinar on 23rd November on the prevention of cyber-crime with speaker Arun Barnard, Cyber Protect Officer at the West Midlands Regional Cyber Crime Unit (ROCU). 

Cyber-attacks have the potential to cause major damage to any business, especially when you take into consideration the reputational and consumer trust damages that come associated with being a victim of such a crime. 

In a bid to educate business owners on both the risks of cybercrime and some possible safeguarding measures against it, BHETA, the leading UK Trade Association for manufacturers, importers and distributors operating in the Home Improvement, Garden, Housewares and Small Electrical sectors, will be running a training webinar next month.  

On 23rd November at 10:30am, BHETA will offer training on the fundamentals of cyber security, ways to stay safe, how to identify phishing, scams, social engineering and other methods of fraud, and where to report anything suspicious.  

A Q&A session will follow the presentation, with plenty of opportunities for attendees to get clarification and guidance on key matters. 

Commenting on the event, BHETA’s marketing manager, Steve Richardson, says: 

“According to the Government’s policy paper on cyber-crime, 39% of businesses have experienced cyber-attack in the preceding twelve months, some up to once a week. With an average cost to each of £4,200 for SMEs, rising to £19,400 for larger companies, this is a serious threat, and I would urge members to attend this event in order to review their security.” 

With material and utility costs rising in unprecedented ways, any opportunity to learn some tips and tricks on how avoid losing money and being defrauded is crucial to business owners. 

This proves even more important for anyone who owns a construction business, as a multitude of sector-specific crimes, such as tool and van theft, threaten your livelihood even further.
