Safeguarding Personal Remote Access Against Cyber-Attacks

Personal Access … Public Attacks?

I have noticed that more staff are using personal devices and untrusted servers to access corporate networks, which is creating the ideal stalking ground for cybercriminals.

I wanted to bring your attention to 2 of SC magazine’s upcoming webcasts that may prove useful. (I have had some great feedback from members who have attended their webcasts as they are far more content than sales led).

The full list can be found at

Details of SC’s next 2 webcasts are pasted below for you to assess their relevance for you and your team:
