Free webinar: Why Quality Cybersecurity Content is so Crucial

June 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

Local councils in NSW are grappling with a critical issue: a lack of robust cybersecurity measures (NSW Auditor-Geneal Report)

Cyber threats are becoming more complex and frequent, meaning that the importance of robust cybersecurity measures is paramount.

The backbone of strong cybersecurity is not just in systems, but also people.

This webinar is applicable to businesses across Australia, but is specifically tailored for local governments looking to enhance their cybersecurity defences.

By incorporating a Learning Management System (LMS) equipped with quality cybersecurity learning content into your security strategy, you ensure that your workforce is well-prepared to identify, understand, and counteract cyber threats effectively.

In this free webinar, our expert panel will discuss how content can empower your team to understand:

  • The current cyber threat landscape
  • How to learn from real-world cyber attacks
  • Techniques for upskilling cyber defence
