Ethical Hackers!

#Shoutout 16:22 on Tue 23 Aug 2016 by Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce   based in/near to ,

The Scottish Borders Chamber of Commerce is holding a meeting at the Buccleuch Arms, St Boswells on Friday, 26th August on the subject of  “Ethical Hackers” which is being sponsored by Chamber members Bruce Stevenson Insurance Brokers. This is a very interesting subject and any business with a computer and access to the internet should consider coming along – and that is probably all of us. Many of us have been “hacked” into in the past or have at least has our email systems hacked resulting in all of our contacts, including major clients, being subjected to spurious emails some of which can be dangerous. We all need to avoid that happening – not just for the embarrassment factor but for the bad impression it can portray of your business. This talk will show you how to detect it and, more importantly, avoid it. Commences 2.30pm at the Buccleuch Arms, St Boswells. FOC.

Please let communications@borderschamber.com know if you are intending to come along.
