About this event:
Warning – email originated outside of organisation. When you see a message too often, you no longer receive the message. What can you do to maintain staff awareness about the cyber-threats that are just waiting for a chance to break in? Now that your organisation is used to remote working, how can you prevent them from being complacent; encouraging them to reject the instinctive belief that threats lie outside the door of their homes. Join us for Deskflix Cyber-security II to learn the tactics of cyber-criminals, and how to make life more difficult for them. Join your peers in discussing secure collaboration, employee awareness techniques, and how to overcome the core challenges that Covid-19 has so far presented.
