Event: Secure at every size

Practical steps to strengthen cybersecurity, whatever your size or stage

Cybercriminals target all businesses no matter their size. In fact, 58% of all victims are small to medium-sized businesses, which is why cybersecurity should be a top priority for every organisation.

Unfortunately, there’s a common misconception that strong cybersecurity is beyond the reach of smaller businesses. In reality, there are many practical, effective ways to improve your security posture no matter your size, and you don’t need deep pockets to do it. Origin’s security solutions are suitable for every budget, level of expertise and stage in the security journey – we’ll meet you wherever you are, whoever you are.

You’re invited to Origin’s Secure at Every Size event on Tuesday 27th November. Hear from peers and industry experts, including Milford Asset Management’s John Paull and Origin Security’s Jason Wild who’ll be discussing prevalent threats in the IT landscape, the security challenges facing New Zealand’s small to medium-sized businesses, and the practical steps you can take to address them.

When: Tuesday, 27th November 2018
Where: The Greenroom, Seafarers Club, Britomart, 52 Tyler St, Auckland, 1010
Time: 3.30pm - 5.00pm, followed by drinks
