LUNCHTIME DISCUSSION DETAIL

Every event we hold an interactive discussion with an expert speaker on a topic of interest to our coworkers. On 11 January we welcome Jim Thompson from Microsoft who will hold a session on Digital Security and the Impact of the Cloud for Small Businesses in 2017

From claims of Russian and Chinese state sponsored hacking, to major leaks of customers’ personal information held by large corporates, to those annoying emails from Nigerian Princes or Internet Banking Phishers praying on the gullible. The security of our data is now more important than ever. 

With our lives and our businesses increasingly played out through digital channels;  our lunchtime discussion will look at what is going on behind the headlines and take a look at what are the biggest risks and opportunities for SME’s and business owners in 2017.
