Banking on Security: Transferring Cybersecurity Culture to SMEs

Cap Tech Talks Webinar Series

Have you ever wondered how the banking industry manages to protect its sensitive data despite being a prime target for cyber threats? The key to their success is their strong cybersecurity culture. This webinar, presented by international banking security expert Tom Vazdar, will delve into the strategies and procedures that make the banking industry a fortress against cyber-attacks.

Cybersecurity is no longer only about technology. It is also about cultivating a culture of alertness and resilience. A robust cybersecurity culture is proactive rather than reactive. It entails constant risk assessments, complex risk management frameworks, and ongoing education and training. It is a company-wide concern that begins at the top and permeates every business level.

But why should this matter to smaller and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)? In the digital age, no firm is immune to cyber threats. SMEs, sometimes seen as having inferior defenses, are particularly vulnerable. SME cybersecurity posture can be considerably improved by learning from the banking industry's approach to cybersecurity culture. Join us as we investigate this essential and timely topic, giving actionable insights to strengthen any organization's cybersecurity defenses.

The 60-minute webinar concludes with a moderated live question-and-answer period. 

Capitol Technology University offers the webinar as a complimentary informational service. This webinar offers a Certificate of Attendance.
