How to be Cyber Secure without Driving yourself Insane

Online Workshop
Presented by Dante St James

When we were kids, we were told all the time to "wash our hands." After all, we could get sick or make someone else sick.

Fast forward to 2022, and we seem to have finally mastered that life skill.

But after more than three decades of being asked to set secure passwords, stop naming our passwords after our kids, dogs and suburbs, and to stop using the same passwords on everything, we're still not washing our digital hands.

And that's because being cybersecure is so confusing and hard!

How are you supposed to remember 270 passwords to the 270 different things you need to log into?

How are you supposed to be securing your customer records in this day and age?

And why does any of this matter?

While $33 billion is an insanely huge number that we can barely comprehend, it's also how much is lost each year in Australia to cybercrime. Perhaps it's more frightening that the average loss to a single business is about $250,000. Ouch.

Cybersecurity is boring. I get that. I'm not sure if I can make it fun. But I can make it simple.

In this 1-hour interactive workshop, you will learn:

1. The 3 things that can make you 95% safer online without spending hundreds or taking hours

2. What your legal obligations are to your clients and customers - and how to easily plug the gaps

3. How your insurance probably doesn't cover you, for cybercrime, and what you can do about that

But more than anything else, you'll learn to finally address those gaping security holes in your business so that you can get back to the stuff that makes you money.
