HackaDay 2020: Cybersecurity Conference

2 December 2020

Securing the basics

Hackers and cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and brazen in their attacks. More so, running a business in a global pandemic is liable to expose the organisation to new vulnerabilities. In all likelihood, remote working is also here to stay. Hence, cybersecurity needs to catch up to this new reality. And it all goes back to securing the basics – from endpoints to collaboration tools, and from on premise to in the cloud.

Happens only once a year. Join us online this December at HackaDay 2020 – Cybersecurity Conference!
