Security Masterclass: How to Protect your SME or Startup?


For SME leaders and start-ups, balancing business growth with protection can be difficult. While technological advancements and an increasingly connected business environment have made it easier for business leaders to explore new revenue opportunities, it has also made it easier for vital assets to be abused, misplaced and stolen.

Join us for the second edition of the Business Class for Entrepreneurs Series to learn why SMEs and start-ups need to start thinking about business protection from the onset. More than another security briefing, this panel will see representatives from diverse backgrounds offer practical advice on what business leaders need to be aware of, how to protect their various and often disparate assets, quick recovery steps to take when the unthinkable happens, and key areas that many tend to overlook.
