May 2018 Women’s Start-Up Club: The Importance of Cyber Security to Entrepreneurs

The next WSC meeting will focus on Cyber Security, with Nicola Vote of McAfee shedding light on how entrepreneurs can protect their customers and also protect their reputation and business online.

Wednesday May 30th / 19:00 - 21:30 / Members ¥2000 / Non-members ¥3000 (covers finger food and soft drinks)

Cyber crime and privacy legislation may appear to be the domain of large corporations, but in fact it is an issue that impacts all of us, both as entrepreneurs and consumers.

In this session, we will explore both sides of the coin: protecting your customers and protecting your reputation and business online.

Topics include:nicola1

  • What does cyber security mean for entrepreneurs?
  • What are the biggest issues for entrepreneurs and small businesses?
  • How can we deal with privacy policies (including the new GDPR)?
  • What is the connection between e-commerce practices such as SEM/SEO and online protection?
  • What steps can I take right now to help protect my business?

Our speaker, Nicola Vote, Global Voice of Customer Operations for McAfee’s Consumer Business (and also FEW’s very own Vice President!), will shed some light into the crucial and complex topic of Cyber Security!
