Cyber Securing Your Business

September 30, 2016

Combat and repel malicious hacks that destroy or hold your data hostage for ransom with this day long seminar from Michael Cropper.

“Learn for yourself how to properly provide cyber security for your organisation.”

We live in a digital world where hacked and locked company websites are held hostage for ransom payment on a daily basis, along with unintentional “human error” resulting in devastating data loss. Cyber security and protecting your digital assets has never been more critical for business!

The sad truth is, every business owner believes they will never be a target, but that is what all victims of hacking for ransom, malware, and Trojan horses think. Obviously it is not true.

The good news is, it securing your business can be accomplished in many easy and affordable ways that we may not be aware of. Michael Cropper shows in this course how easily it can be done no matter how big or small your business may be. Michael’s company deals with around 2-3 hacked websites per month just in our area alone! He will show you in simple steps how to make sure your business isn’t the next victim.

Protect your website and company data/digital assets against cyber attacks by taking proactive measures to minimise your risk. Cyber attacks on your website have an enormous detrimental impact on your brand as customers see the impact which can result in lost sales and enquiries both now and in the future. Not to mention the legal exposure to law suits as a result of poor data security (c.f. Target Stores, Home Depot, etc)

Another alarming truth is that most believe that cyber security is being taken care of by their IT team, web development team or digital agency, but the likelihood is that it isn’t being taken care of at all. That responsibility is on the owner of the business or the person tasked with “looking after” the company website.

Book on this course and learn what you need to know about protecting your website and web server against cyber security attacks. This workshop is specifically designed for business owners and those responsible for overseeing the business so that you can put safety measures in place to protect against data theft, destruction, and loss due to unscrupulous hackers.

Michael will also give you the proper elements to be discussing with your IT and web development teams to ensure that your business can be both profitable and safe online.
