Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Saturday, February 20th 2021, or created by us.
The need for effective cybersecurity training is more pressing than ever. With COVID-19 restrictions bringing about the increasing shift to home working, companies are now offering many more vulnerable points to malicious hackers. According to the IBM Data Breach Report, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was 3.86 million dollars, and the average time to identify and contain it was 280 days. The shift to remote work has created a more complex security landscape that will require significant focus and resources moving forward. Training is crucial to help organizations and teams to become cyber-aware with regards to best practices including password strength, phishing emails (which have exploded in number since the start of the pandemic), and other types of cyber-attacks.
What’s in it for me?

- I depend on ICT for my business: How do I train my staff in cybersecurity if I have a limited budget?
- Staff working from remote will increase cyber risks: How do we step up our cybersecurity skills?
- This workshop is specifically for all those who are pondering these questions!
