An Introduction to Cyber Security and Penetration Testing

20 January 2021 1pm – 2pm
Webinar

Cyber Security and Penetration Testing in particular are becoming increasingly important, with Microsoft estimating that cyber attacks against organisations have risen by 54% since the outbreak of Covid19. Rather than just sitting back and hoping for the best, having a robust cyber security plan and performing proactive penetration testing allows your business to protect itself against the risk before it happens.

This webinar will demonstrate how targeted penetration testing can help to: uncover potentially critical security issues within your corporate environments; identify how these vulnerabilities can be used by malicious actors and most importantly; what steps can be taken to mitigate risk and fix potential issues before they are exploited for real.

 

Who is the webinar aimed at?
