The NPCC invites you to the National Business Cybercrime Conference 2021

Martin Smith MBE, Founder & Chairman of The SASIG, and Commissioner Ian Dyson QPM, National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) Lead for Cybercrime, invite all businesses, small and large, to attend the NPCC National Business Cybercrime Conference 2021, taking place on the Thursday 4 November 2021 at the iconic Kia Oval in London.

The conference is free to attend and is aimed at helping minimise our risk and exposure to potential cybercrime. It is a great chance to hear from law enforcement and industry experts about the emerging risks to our businesses and how we can protect ourselves against attack.

Although efforts to combat cybercrime are the ‘most joined-up bit’ of UK law enforcement, police forces cannot do it alone. Cybercrime will be defeated only through collaboration, engagement and partnership with industry and with the community.

Join us as we explore the UK’s growing and evolving capability to counter cybercrime at the national, regional and local levels. The agenda features speakers from the national and regional cybercrime network as well as industry experts in cybersecurity and cybercrime prevention/detection. It will be an opportunity for players from all parts of the fight against cybercrime to gather and review progress.
