Organiser: Work My Own Way
29 March 2022, Tuesday
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Cybersecurity – is your business safe?

Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important for small businesses. Over the last 12 months, cybercriminals have specifically targeted small business owners, and not only can a breach cost your business thousands of dollars, but the introduction of mandatory data breach reporting also means that many small businesses are now at risk of 6-figure fines if they don’t inform their customers when they experience a security breach.

Join Dr. Elena Kelareva as she helps you to understand what cybersecurity risks may affect your business, and how to protect yourself, your business, and your customers online.

In this workshop, you will learn:

What the biggest cybersecurity risks actually are
Security for your network and hardware devices
Password security and keeping hackers from gaining access to your online accounts
How to protect your website
And much more!
