MONTHLY CONNECT - DECEMBER
THE DECEMBER MONTHLY CONNECT FEATURES:
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CYBER THREATS AND HOW TO FIGHT BACK.
Peter Loosley, Managing Director of Virtual IT Managed Services, has over 30 years’ experience in Information Technology. Starting as a computer technician fixing circuit boards, to then learn system administration and cyber-security. Having honed his skills working for large corporations, the gaming industry and then to eventually become IT Manager of an International Airport and Head of IT for a research company.
He is now recognised as a trusted advisor and thought leader for many businesses since starting his own business 4 years ago and is a sought-after speaker for many discussion groups.
Over the last 4 years, Peter has seen massive changes in technology and the growing gap between the business’s understanding of today’s technology, and the skills required to properly manage and secure their data.
Peter states, “we are in a war with cyber criminals and if you are not properly prepared and know what you need to do to protect your business, you can easily become a statistic in the evening news”
During this informative session, Peter will explain some of the way’s organisations suffer data breaches. He will also help you understand that no matter how up to date your security technology, your last line of defence is always your users. Are your employees prepared? Arm them with the skills to become your greatest asset and the first line of defence, not the last.
