As technology becomes hugely influential to businesses across the country, it doesn’t mean that most understand the rights and wrongs. Lindsey Hall from EasylifeIT™ recently hosted another successful event in the TechTalk series at the Masteroast Coffee Training Centre in Fengate on the 11th of February; which was attended by local small businesses.
TechTalks are a series of bi-monthly discussion based events where Lindsey briefs on the latest IT challenges businesses face on a daily basis. The aim is to help, educate and inform with no product pitches, introducing you into different and interesting venues whilst learning something new.
Cybersecurity for Small Business was the talking point at this TechTalk; briefing and then discussing with other businesses about what they can do to protect their business and the best way to do so from such things as viruses to malware. The interactive and relaxed format allowed those who attended to take away some real tips and advice to enforce into their businesses.
The event was received very well. "I learnt some interesting things that I can pass onto our team" said Vikki Mason of Helping Hands, and Linda Hayman of Blue River Coaching commented “Loved the presentation; it captured my imagination. Practical, relevant and great expertise”
Lindsey Hall, MD of EasylifeIT and presenter on the day stated; “Most businesses believe that just having an antivirus is enough; it is not! There is no technological silver bullet and no amount of security product which will compensate for carelessness or lack of staff training. Education is absolutely key”
EasylifeIT TechTalks are a series of short briefings and Q&A sessions hosted by local companies with an interesting story to tell.
The next scheduled TechTalk is in April 2015 - Venue to be announced
