In the futuristic sounding year of 2020 in which we find ourselves in, data is worth more than oil. With data breaches rising year on year, how do we tackle cyber threats in the new decade and the current climate we have found ourselves in?
Salford Professional Development are proud to be holding our fifth annual Cyber Security Conference. Bringing together experts and industry professionals in what promises to be an engaging and informative day.
This event will focus primarily on the challenges faced since the pandemic and the ways in which cyber security has had to adapt to the increased changes. As an example, based on a recent study, attacks aimed at home workers with malicious emails, increased from an average of 12% to more than 60% in May 2020.
Join us and discover a wealth of information to assist with your organisation’s cyber security needs.
