Webinar: A Brief Insight into Ways of Protecting your Business in Cyberspace

September 19 / 11:00 am - 11:30 pm UTC+2


Cyber attacks increasingly wreak havoc in the business world. This is especially true for small and medium sized enterprises, since they usually do not have a large budget to purchase expensive cyber security products from large vendors. In addition to a lack of money, limited awareness of the issue among company employees is another factor that places many corporations at risk.

Despite these challenges, there is a lot you can do to strengthen your digital defenses even with limited resources. For example, you can introduce different levels of authorization for employees and contractors and issue guidelines for managing.

Ecovis Beijing has a strong cyber security practice and our team is committed to helping SMEs deal with cyber criminals. In our webinar on corporate cyber defense, we share some of our insights into securing corporate networks and incentivizing employees to become your first line of defense.

Our Ecovis Beijing consultant Andre Baum will be discussing the following key points:

  • Explain key concepts of corporate cyber defense for SMEs
  • Analysis of potential security risks
  • Recommend some economical and problem-solving approaches
  • Q&A, discussion round
