With frequent news stories of the latest cyber-attacks, court cases on personal privacy, and seemingly unending revelations of data breaches compromising your personal data, you could be forgiven in thinking that achieving security in cyber is impossible. However, you can take very reasonable and simple steps to raise the bar of your business’s security and remove it from more than 90% of attack methods.

Dr Danny Steed will take you through a range of practical solutions available for organisations to put in place to reduce risk. By exploring the practical solutions available, you can learn immediately how to harden your own security.
