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

Testimonial:This seminar was timely and relevant for me because I’ve spent more time communicating online on a personal and business level. I found the facilitator to be knowledgeable in the subject matter and he was able to communicate the info in a simple and jovial manner. My awareness has risen toward possible online and physical threats to person and property. I would definitely begin to apply some of the protection measures that I learnt from this seminar. Thanks to Christian and Rhics Tech for sharing knowledge.
