IT Security - How Exposed are we to the Cyber Threat?
A seminar for Professional Service Providers
Thursday 24 April 2014
The Trade & Investment Section of the British Embassy in Belgium cordially invites you to a seminar on Cyber Security for Professional Service Providers.

This seminar is aimed at representatives of professional service providers, those operating within sectors such as finance, recruitment, accountancy, consultancy, legal etc. who seek to ensure the security of their organisations data and networks as service providers are increasingly becoming targets of malicious activities due to the data they hold.

 It will discuss why IT Security is growing in importance, how exposed we are to cybercrime, common threats and how to protect IT networks against the growing threats.

Brussels based company Netshield will introduce IT services aimed at delivering effective IT security for your operations.
