‘It won’t happen to me!’ Business Crime Training Event. Get your place booked!

By Business Crime Team on Jan 14, 2020 04:17 am

‘It Won’t Happen To Me!’ Crime Prevention Workshop for Warwickshire SMEs

 

REGISTER HERE!

 

Warwickshire County Council Community Safety Team, Warwickshire Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire are working in partnership to deliver support to businesses in Warwickshire.

As part of this, we are running a crime prevention workshop to provide information and advice to Warwickshire’s SMEs. Businesses are being given the opportunity to discuss facts and issues and reflect on what could you improve within your business. Also providing updates from colleagues regarding latest and emerging trends across Warwickshire.

From this, we hope to:

  • Improve our engagements with the business community
  • Raise awareness of the latest crime trends, and enable businesses to protect themselves from crime, and its many impacts.
  • Enable businesses to target resources more efficiently, through effective intelligence and information exchange, ensuring a safe environment to live and work.
  • Share best practice and support all businesses throughout Warwickshire.

Six crime prevention areas for businesses will be explored:

  • Warwickshire Business Watch Partnership & Crime Prevention
  • Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking: What are your responsibilities
  • Cyber Crime: Common Threats, Social Engineering and the impact on SMEs
  • GDPR: Why it’s more than an IT problem
  • Business Continuity: Emergency planning & Business Continuity
  • Prevent & the Business Community: Spot the signs of radicalisation, extremism and terrorism

AGENDA

8:00 – 08:30 Breakfast and Networking

08:30 – 10:30 Key updates from colleagues

10:30 – 11:00 Q&A and Closing Remarks

Light breakfast, coffee & tea will be provided for the duration of the event.

Warwickshire Business Watch Partnership Scheme

Traditional business crime is all about knowing how to best protect your business. You could take simple and cost effective measures to ensure the safety and security inside and outside your business. Find out the 3 most common threats to your business and how to tackle these. Warwickshire County Council Business Crime Advisor will go through the scheme and support available for businesses here in Warwickshire.

Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking (MSHT)

Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires businesses with a turnover of £36 million to prepare and publish a slavery and human trafficking statement for each financial year. However, businesses with turnover below the required threshold could also publicise a Section 54 statement describing their actions to prevent modern slavery from occurring within their business.

We would encourage as many businesses as possible to join us in eradicating human rights abuses in supply chains and show that there is a collaborative response when it comes to ensuring human rights due diligence here in Warwickshire. Warwickshire County Council Business Crime Advisor will provide an insight into modern slavery and human trafficking at an international, national and local level, as well as sharing best practices on how to spot the signs of modern slavery.

Cyber Crime & Social Engineering

Are your online accounts secure? If you are a small or medium sized business, there’s a 50% chance you will experience a cyber security breach. The average cost of a cyber security breach for small businesses is around £1,400 and above. Considering that SMEs make up almost 99.9% of Britain’s 5.5 million private sector businesses, lack of cyber security measures may pose a real threat to Warwickshire and the UK economy. Warwickshire County Council Cyber Crime Advisors and Regional Organised Crime United Cyber Protect Officer will take you through the latest crime trends and protection advice available.

General Data Protection Regulation – More than an IT problem?

Data breaches are commonplace. The definition of “data” that the EU uses is any information that can be used to identify, directly or indirectly, an individual person. For businesses, everything from employee key cards to email addresses are considered processing data, and subject to the regulation.

GDPR has a direct impact on your business, regardless of size. Working alongside partner agencies, Risk Evolves will be taking us through GDPR and security issues, explaining the importance of GDPR and why it is more than an IT problem.

Prevent & the Business Community

Warwickshire is a safe place to live and most crime types are continuing to reduce. However, we also live in a global community which means we are affected by trends and events that occur at the international level. At present, we need to consider the international threat of terrorism and those people who are pulled into groups that support extremist causes. Warwickshire County Council Prevent Officer will tell you more about the signs of radicalisation, extremism and terrorism and what you can do in the event of spotting the signs by taking part of this training session.

Business Continuity

Why is a Business Continuity Plan important? The answer is simple. Each business needs to have the ability to react quickly, respond and recover from a traditional crime incident or a cyber security breach. The impact of an incident is often wider than people first think, hence we will be having the Principal Emergency Planning Officer from the Regional CSW Resilience Team to provide support and guidance that will ensure your business has a smooth transition for when the time comes.

This event is sponsored and supported by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe, Warwickshire County Council, Warwickshire Police, Regional Organised Crime Unit, CSW Resilience Team, Risk Evolves, CWLEP Growth Hub, C&W Chamber of Commerce, Federation of Small Businesses.

There are no costs involved for this event, however please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
