What the Event Will Cover:

Please join us at the next FD Network event on 11th July 2019 covering Cyber security and export opportunities. This event will look at cyber security from a business perspective and how it is changing. Addressing issues around how far an organisation should look outside its own current operations and how organisations are embracing cyber security principles to drive their business. 

Guided by experience of working with businesses across technical and commercial engagements over many years, Sapphire operate throughout the UK and provide dedicated data assurance services and security solutions to public and private sector clients.

We are also delighted to welcome representatives from the Department for International Trade who will discuss export processes and procedures. Our guest speakers will outline how they help small and large businesses develop export opportunities and drive international growth.
