Webinar: Managing media risk in a cyber world

Posted by Moore Kingston Smith

Media and marketing businesses process and safeguard large quantities of personal data, which can be vulnerable to automated cyber-attacks.

We have seen the activities of cyber criminals in this sector escalate. The type of data at risk includes names and addresses, calendar files, user credentials, network infrastructure documentation, PR and marketing material, and much more. It is therefore crucial to understand where your digital vulnerabilities lie and how to limit your exposure to cyber-attacks.

Join Moore ClearComm for our webinar on Wednesday 15th June at 10am, where our panel will discuss the heightened threat posed by global events, draw on the lessons learned from a recent ransomware attack against a high-profile digital marketing company, and detail how your organisation can viably reduce its risk of cyber-attack and associated data breach.

You can submit questions beforehand, or you can ask any questions you may have during the webinar.
