Cybersecurity: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

Your personal and business information is at risk every single day: phishing emails, viruses, Trojan horses, adware, malware, spyware and more. All looking to steal, reveal, and sometimes repeal your information.

Cybersecurity attacks are on the rise. Every day we see news stories from companies that have suffered a cyberattack, and how thousands of records have been exposed. Hackers are nimble and innovative. There is no end to their creativity when it comes to cracking your computer’s security. Employees can, unknowingly, be an integral part of a cyber-attack. From stolen laptops and hacked smartphones, to emails with viruses, there are many ways a company can become a victim. You need to know what to be on the look-out for and how to respond.

This eye-opening workshop will give you the tools to take proven preventative measures, how to train employees to recognize these attacks, and what to do after they have identified it. We will explore many of the ways attackers can access your computer, and what you can do to prevent this. We will explore previous cyber-attack cases, their consequences and steps taken by the companies affected.
