CyberSecurity Toolkit for SME’s
Have you ever been hacked as an SME?
Trust me it’s the worst feeling ever! Especially in this world where our Products, Customers, Data, Clients, and even Marketplace are ALL online.
Even personal data breaches can cost us dearly, trust me, as a social media manager it’s even worse.
That is why @cybersafehq, in conjunction with KPMG and @ukaidfoundation has designed a workshop exclusively for SMEs like us and most of the entrepreneurs in the tribe, complete with the necessary tool kit to help us protect ourselves against cyberattacks.
Don’t let one misplaced phone or Mushin under-bridge hacker cost you years worth of work and integrity.
You can register for this workshop via the link in our stories and also the link in our bio.
Check out the program of events below.
