Protect your social media & email from hackers

Webinar
Presented by Dante St James

Each Christmas and New Year period as university students go on holidays, workers take a well-earned break and the feeling of freedom from care takes over the developed world, the more nefarious members of our community come to life. Just like the rate of home break-ins goes through a dramatic spike at this time of the year, so does the rate of low-level cybercrime. This year, it's expected that we'll see a big increase in hacked email accounts, Facebook accounts, Instagram business accounts and LinkedIn profiles.

This past year, Dante St James has personally had to deal with over 100 business Facebook accounts that have been hacked or compromised, costing the small business community he works with, in excess of $500,000 in lost revenue opportunities a potential new clientele. There is a specific and highly effective attack vector used by hackers on Facebook and other social media accounts that is based around getting access to your email account.

In this highly practical and important webinar you will learn;

  1. The two things that you must do to protect your Facebook account from being hacked immediately
  2. The simple things that hackers do to gain access to your email account
  3. How to secure other social media platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram, GoogleMyBusiness and TikTok
  4. How to continue operating a business on Facebook & Instagram when you've lost access to your ads account due to malicious access
