Event Details

This event is part of Cyber Scotland Week 2021 and is being supported by technology and security specialist Converged Communication Solutions, with a 45-minute interactive presentation and a Q&A opportunity at the end.

The session will be delivered via video conferencing platform Zoom and will be held at 11am on Wednesday, February 24.

As organisations have transitioned to remote working and are relying on digital communication more than ever, many employees and volunteers have fallen victim to cyber threats.

Working together, TechFest and Converged aim to bring an entry level understanding to those at the start of their cyber journey. Topics covered will include: how cyber security affects an organisation, why cyber criminals target charities, what the different types of attacks are and how individuals can identify risks.

The tech specialists will also simplify common IT and cyber jargon as well as explain techniques used by hackers, such as social engineering, which pieces together information from social media profiles in order to access your personal data and hack into accounts.

TechFest and Converged have created a poll for attendees to identify areas of concern in advance so these can be addressed during the event.
