Cyber Training Community Local Event

Help For Local Companies To Prepare For A Cyber Attack - Listen to Cyber Experts (Gentium UK)

20th March 2024, 18:00

With Cyber-crime on the increase and in the news on an almost daily basis, it is difficult for companies to know where is best to invest and what preventative measures they need to take that will make the difference. As an IT solutions company, based in Wetherby, we have vast experience in supporting companies with their general IT services to supporting companies who have experienced a ransomware attack.

As a business we are constantly looking at ways to give back to our local community, so we have partnered with Gentium UK, based in Leeds, to run a fun evening of education with a ‘cyber challenge’ at our offices on Thursday 20 March, from 6-8pm in the evening.

We know that people are often put off IT, thinking they won’t understand it, but the potential impact to a business from a cyberattack is significant, to the point they can close businesses down. We decided to take a more light-hearted approach (and all for a good cause!) to raise awareness of the challenges’ companies face and working with Gentium UK, they will be providing the opportunity as teams to solve a cyber problem and see some of the challenges it could pose.

This will also be an opportunity to raise much needed funds for our charity partner Martin House Children’s Hospice. We would like any business in the Wetherby/Harrogate areas to join us and see if they can solve this cyber challenge, making a donation of £10 to the Hospice, which is soon to launch a massive fundraising campaign to rebuild their whole building. All part of their March’s Accumulator campaign.

We can then provide practical advice on how to protect themselves from similar attacks, which are massively on the increase, so supporting them at the same time.


Andrew Tennant, Director “Preventative measures are essential for businesses facing cybercrime because in today’s digitally interconnected world, it’s not a matter of if but when a cyberattack will occur. Investing in cybersecurity is not just about protecting sensitive data and financial assets; it’s about safeguarding the trust and reputation of the business, maintaining operational continuity, and upholding customer confidence in an ever-changing threat landscape.”
