On Wednesday 21 June 2017, we hosted a very busy IT security seminar in response to the recent rise in IT security threats. Attended by local schools and organisations, delegates were updated on the evolving threat landscape and the best practice and approaches to protect critical data and networks from leading security industry companies Smoothwall, Webroot and InfoSec.
These presentations are now available for download below.
Medhurst’s Gareth Davies opened the event with an Introduction to IT Security for schools and businesses – the evolving threat landscape and the best practice and approaches to protect critical data and networks.
