GCI launches series of cyber security events aimed at small businesses
Converged ICT Services Provider GCI today announces a series of nationwide events aimed to educate and inform small businesses about the range of cyber security threats they face – and how to deal with them.
4 September 2019
The events will take place throughout September in Derby, Manchester, Leeds and Poole and will cover the following:
- How to take a holistic approach towards SME cyber-security through people, processes and technology
- The most up-to-date cyber-security trends affecting SMEs, including Office 365 issues, mobility and the ‘bring your own device’ trend
- Services available to complement SME security strategies whilst taking into consideration common constraints including compliance, budget and limited technical resources
The sessions will also include real life examples of SME customers and how they have used solutions such as security information and event management (SIEM) systems, managed firewalls and multi-factor authentication to help safeguard their businesses.
Andrew Napier, Network, Infrastructure and Security Manager at GCI explains: “Changes in the way that SMEs operate, with higher levels of remote working, adoption of Cloud systems such as Office 365, shadow IT and new compliance regulations such as GDPR, have left many SMEs in a challenged space. For any sized organisation these are significant challenges, but for SMEs exasperated by budget restraints, competing priorities and a lack of specialist technical skills it can be an overwhelming predicament. Our events are designed to demystify some of these challenges and how to solve them.”
