November – What is Cyber Security and why is it important to your business?

Focus Technology, November 21 2017

Cyber-attacks can happen in a matter of minutes, exposing you to theft of data. Regardless of what is stolen, the result is essentially the same: you lose money, time, resources and potentially your entire business. In today’s online age, the number of threats to businesses and their customers increases every day.

We live in a fast-paced, global economy that relies more and more on data and information carried through cyberspace. As a business, it is important to maintain the physical property you own and protect it against intruders, potential theft and other acts that could cause issues within your company. In the same way, cyber security is as important a need, if not greater, than traditional security precautions.

St Johns Rooms, Wanaka. 12.30-2pm – Hour-long presentation with Q+A at the end. Bring a bite to eat and learn while you lunch.
