    Synopsis:

    A cyber crime that evades cyber security, Invoice Hijack is estimated by the FBI to have cost global business 26 billion dollars from 2016-19. £90m of losses to business were reported in the UK last year, with the average loss being £20k across nearly 4,500 payments. It targets people and the Accounts Payable process in businesses of all sizes. This seminar will help you understand the risks, what to watch out for and how to protect yourself. It will also show how working smarter can not only prevent losses but save you money and improve your business.

What members and guests say

"I use business networking extensively to build new business and so I come across all types of Networking Companies. To say that The Business Network stands head and shoulders above the rest is only telling it how it is. The format is excellent and relaxing which get the best out of everyone. I can heartily recommend Business Network."

"Having had the privilege of speaking at two of The Business Network events I only need one word to describe how they are organised, promoted and staged - BRILLIANT!"
