UK reseller The Rapid Group is offering a free Internet security seminar in London June 3.

The seminar is part of Rapid's "Keep IT Secure, Let IT Work" initiative, in which the company hopes to help small and medium businesses to improve their information security awareness and implementation.

Security seminars will be made available to customers in Fleet, Bournemouth and other locations across the South East following the London launch June 3 at the Congress Centre, Great Russell Street, London. This seminar follows the theme: 'Securing the Connected Business'.

The move follows a Department of Trade and Industry report published this week which confirmed more businesses are going online – but also warned that more security problems have emerged as a result. Three quarters of all UK businesses suffered a security incident last year that on average took between 2-4 working days to respond to, according to the DTI.

Rapid Group's Ron Preston explained: "Our customers look to us for help and advice in maintaining a robustly secured environment."
