Kellie Peters (Databasix) will be joined by Piers Clayden, founder of Oxford based Clayden Law. Our webinar will draw upon real-life breach stories and discuss what the response was, what they could have done to prepare and most importantly what lessons could the business learn.

The webinar will last 30minutes, with an additional 15minutes for questions.  The webinar will be recorded and uploaded to the Databasix UK website within 72hrs.

In the first 9 months of 2019 there were 5,183 breaches world-wide, with an astounding 7.9 billion data records exposed. This is a 33% increase on 2018! It is inevitable that you will experience a data breach in your workplace. Breaches come in the form of malicious malware, phishing scams, accidental leaks/exposure, and deliberate acts of misconduct.

Connect Harwell’s bi-monthly events are open to all campus organisations and sectors, providing a central forum to network and meet colleagues from the 200+ companies and facilities spread across the site. Connect Harwell events are hosted by a different campus organisation each time, providing an opportunity to visit some of the buildings you may never have been inside.

Utilising space technology can offer ambitious entrepreneurs the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage within their sector. STFC manages the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre UK (ESA BIC UK), which provides the support and funding that start-up companies need to turn their ideas into profitable products and services using space technology, or to develop technologies for use in space. Over 80 start-up businesses have been supported by the ESA BIC across the UK, most of which have been located at the Atlas Building on Harwell Campus.

Come along and meet colleagues from organisations across the campus in a relaxed and informative environment where you will hear more about some of the partnerships that are flourishing here. It may be a chance for you to make a new connection or two that could be helpful.

If you cannot come along in February, please invite colleagues along in your place and also feel free to invite any contacts you may have from other campus-located organisations that you work with.

We look forward to welcoming you and/or your colleagues to the Connect Harwell event.

The event is brought to you by Harwell Campus and STFC in partnership.
