About this event

Apple, Sony, Kmart, Experian, Lastpass, eBay. What do all these companies have in common? If you guessed ‘they've all been in the news for being hacked’, you'd be right. Barely a week goes by without another high profile hack making the headlines, resulting in corporate secrets or customer details showing up on the Internet for anyone to read.

The increasing frequency of such large scale incidents has made cybersecurity a hot topic in the business community, but what does cybersecurity even mean? Why does it matter to small business and startups, and what can they do about it? As hacking and privacy have become bigger issues for companies of all sizes, and even for everyday people, the little guys are being left to fend for themselves.

In this presentation, we will break down the buzz words and explain why cybersecurity is relevant to small and medium businesses, and why it's a problem that no business can afford to ignore, regardless of size.

Takeaways

  • Understanding the nature of cybersecurity, and why taking it seriously is good for your business
  • Learning about the kinds of cyber-threats that are applicable to small businesses and startups
  • Advice on how to apply the cybersecurity lessons learned by big business in a small business setting
