Talk on ''Security for Start Ups and SMEs''

27/11/2019 | Completed Event

No business, whether large or small, can afford to ignore cyber security. Traditionally, large companies and corporations have been popular targets and have threats that range from corporate espionage/sabotage to even other nation states. However, small businesses are not immune and, for some hackers, are actually the more desired target. With the objective to raise awareness levels on cyber security among startups and medium size companies, we organised a talk '' Security for SMEs and Start Ups'' . The event was held at the Integrated Startup Complex, Kalamassery. Cyber Risk professionals from Ernst & Young LLP Chennai led the session. Mr.Jude Collins and Mr.Sukiraman Manivannan, Managers-Ernst&Young LLP were the speakers. They interacted with Startup Founders and Owners of SME companies on the importance of having a security strategy in place. There were deliberations on the common pitfalls, case studies, global trends and also privacy concerns. Mr.Vivek George, Manager- WTC moderated the discussions. This programme was done in partnership with Kerala Startup Mission.
