Take a look at our upcoming webinar topics:

July (date to be announced): Cybersecurity in the World Switched Online.

Former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, once said: “There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that will be.” These words are especially relevant now that many businesses are going online. Organizations face an ever-increasing number of cyber threats. According to recent statistics, hacking attacks occur every 39 seconds, which is more frequent and advanced than ever before. Yet, over two-thirds of businesses are not ready to respond to a cyber-attack, despite growing investments in cybersecurity. A reasonable question for companies to ask is: what are the most efficient investments we can make to be protected from cyber-attacks?

There are more webinars to come by the end of 2020. Stay tuned!
