Cyber Security Essentials for Businesses

It is no longer about “IF” you will be attacked, but “WHEN”. Are you ready?

Why Cyber Security?

In today’s data-driven, highly distributed world, companies now use the internet to undertake the very basic of business tasks, to advertise and sell, find new markets, customers and staff, communicate with customers and suppliers, process financial transactions, amongst others.

The Internet brings huge business opportunities and benefits; it also brings some security risks. It is increasingly important to manage these risks to take advantage of the internet whilst protecting your business.

Every day there are attacks on the IT systems of companies like yours, attempting to steal information and money, or disrupt business activities. More customers are now demanding that their suppliers are secure, making cyber security a business necessity for companies.

What our clients say

I enjoyed the hands-on practical aspect of the course. I now hope to reach the international market through a dedicated digital business strategy.

The seminar was quite enlightening and educative. I was made aware of the huge threat of cyber attacks on individuals. business organizations and governments. The need to be very careful with divulging information on the internet and opening of unsolicited or suspicious mail. The importance of security checks on personal profiles and status. The training of staff on the importance of cybersecurity so they could be prepared and be able to identify threats and to report all threats. Organizations need to invest in cybersecurity to safeguard their documents, data and networks against cyber attacks that can result in humongous losses. As for me and my organization it has impacted us on being careful with our documents and emails as it concerns our international orders and deliveries.

I just want to thank Christian for journeying all the way to Grenada to do this for us. I think it is a much-needed program at this point in Grenada where we are moving and transition into a time whereby everything is done online.
