Cybersecurity for businesses and social enterprises

A timely guest on today’s Business Live radio programme: Peter Wright, solicitor and MD of Digital Law UK joined me to give listeners advice on how to protect their businesses from online and digital crime.

Peter’s appearance on the show comes as new official data demonstrates the growing threat of online fraud and cyber crime.

An estimated 3.8m adults in England and Wales were victims of some form of online fraud in the space of a year, according to figures in the Crime Survey for England and Wales.

Today’s programme also included an interview with Paul Kilner of the Confucius Institute at the University of Sheffield.

Here’s the podcast:
