Cybercrime is on the rise with hackers becoming increasingly more sophisticated. 

The stats are alarming: Cybercrime was the second most reported crime in 2016, says PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC). 

No matter the industry or size of a company, cybercrime poses a serious threat. It’s easier than ever to become compromised and South African companies are far from immune. Goliath and Goliath, a well-known comedy and entertainment agency, revealed that phishers stole over R300,000 out of  their account last year.

Small business, big victim

You think it won’t happen… but what would you do if your business got hacked? Small businesses are an easy target. Many become compromised within the first six months of operation because they’ve scrimped on security solution. 

Local security experts, Ukuvuma Security Solutions, are hosting a live hack webinar this Friday, 29 March 2019. Watch a business get hacked in real-time. Then find out how what to do next…

“One of the prevailing myths around cybersecurity is that it costs millions of rands to implement,” says Andrew Chester, MD of Ukuvuma Security. “This is simply not true. Many companies already have infrastructure in place that just needs to be optimised and tweaks in order to block attacks.”

There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds. 43% of cyberattacks target small businesses. What can you do to prevent this from happening to you? 

The Ukuvuma Security webinar is free of charge. To book: https://www.howtheygotin.co.za/ukuvuma-the-hunt-1-0/
