4 April 2019 by UKFast

Over the past seven weeks, we’ve invited a whole host of cybersecurity specialists to take part in our security-themed webinar series: Your Cybersecurity Guide for 2019.

This informative series is packed full of expert insight and advice, designed to help you bolster your online security. Laying the foundations for a great cybersecurity strategy, we’ve covered three core topics so far and the final episode is streaming live on Friday 5th April 2019.

What’s been included in the series so far? And what can you expect from Part Four? Let’s take a look.

Part One – What would an attack mean for your business?

The first step to protecting your business is knowing what you’re protecting it from. What threats are out there right now? What are the risks to your unique business and the data it holds? In this episode we discussed the risks and potential outcomes to businesses that are hit by cybercriminals.
