Lincolnshire PCC and FSB support Cyber Security for businesses

  • 31 Aug 2018

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire and his team are working with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and other partners to provide advice and guidance for businesses about cyber-security.

The ever present threat from cyber-crime has become a major concern locally so it is important that ways to mitigate the risks are provided. Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner (DPCC) Stuart Tweedale is leading on the funding and delivery of Cyber-Security events with support from FSB, training organisation Lagat, Nat West and the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub. 


The next event will be a Cyber-Security Breakfast at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing in Holbeach on Friday 7 September 2018. It is a two hour workshop which includes presentations from the Police and industry experts about the latest cyber-security threats to businesses.

DPCC Stuart Tweedale said; “With the increased use of information technology within businesses this free event is a really great opportunity for Lincolnshire businesses to hear and discuss with industry experts on how they can best protect themselves from ever increasing cyber threats”

Development Manager for FSB Lincolnshire, David Thorpe said; “In addition to providing essential information on cyber-security this series of events has also shown the benefits from various organisations working together to support business owners and managers across the County”

The first Cyber-Security Breakfast was hosted by North Kesteven District Council in Sleaford. Over 50 delegates booked on and the feedback was excellent, especially as the guest speakers were using real life examples to help describe the risks, outcomes and solutions. The latest event was a conference at The Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa.
