We will provide business leaders with the information needed to be prepared, including:

2. Practical advice and next steps

Uncover the practical and feasible steps every business can take to bolster their cyber security.

3. Resources to educate your employees

Most cyber-attacks originate from employees unknowingly downloading a malicious file in an email, or creating a weak password that’s easy for a hacker to guess. Your workforce provides an easy access ‘backdoor’ for hackers to enter your network and access your organisation’s private data.

Post COVID19, as remote working becomes a long-term solution, employees are even more vulnerable to cyber security attacks. We will provide a number of resources to educate your workforce, and shape a ‘cyber resilience culture' in your business.
