The event is primarily aimed at businesses and organisations in the region, raising awareness and offering guidance and advice on managing cyber risks, protecting against crime, and mitigating against information loss.

University Campus Aylesbury Vale is a partnership between Bucks New University and Aylesbury College and academics from the University's Resilience, Business and Computing teams will also be available to talk about how they can help businesses to be 'cyber resilient'.

Mr Wood, who is also Head of School for Management & Professional Studies at Bucks New University, said: "This breakfast briefing looks at how we can consider the safe and secure use of our computers and mobile devices in a world filled with unscrupulous hackers and cyber criminals. We will discuss what cyber is, who the adversaries are, what we can do about it, and how people can get help.

"Cyber threats could come from individuals, organised criminals, terrorists or even governments and they are targeting the vulnerable and unprotected to steal their money and to damage businesses and national interests. 

"Potential criminals know that people are technology-dependent and also know that people generally don't understand the threat. Most importantly they know that our mobile and connected lives make their job so much easier."
