Data Protection, Privacy & Cybersecurity Beyond The Pandemic!
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we interact and work. After the announcement of the mandated second lockdown in Uganda, many corporations (some of which are AmCham members) have instituted remote work policies to help combat the spread of COVID-19. With an increased number of employees working through remote connections, and the fear and uncertainty prevalent in the country today, corporations and their employees are increasingly at risk of fraud or cyberattacks.
This training sponsored by our President Club Member, Sombha Solutions Stores will teach you how to avoid and protect against cyber security threats. Cyber Security is a crucial aspect of a business, and it must be made certain that the correct procedures are enacted in order to guarantee the best security for the enterprise.
