Meet Ryan Ackroyd, the man that hacked Sony, Fox and the FBI at our Cyber Security Seminar in November.
There’s nothing more terrifying for a business than the threat of cyber-attack, right? Still think your safe? How about a few gory details.
• Two thirds of businesses were hit by cyber-crime last year
• The average cost to resolve a cyber-crime incident is £358,956 and takes 31 days
• Only 10% of breached companies have a cyber security incident plan in place
Are you within that 90% that have no plan? Who better to help you than Ryan Ackroyd, former member of the notorious group of hackers – LulzSec. He now uses his insight to secure systems rather than break them.
