With the recent COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, many companies and individuals had to move their business operations online and get used to a new norm of daily teleconference communications. On the one hand, the new reality has triggered businesses to think creatively and established new forms of business development. On the other hand - it has increased the number of cyberattacks, phishing scams and malware that might lead to your sensitive data being damaged or leaked.

To protect the CERBA community from any severe losses or any other cyber risks that might affect your business and personal data - we hosted an exclusive Cybersecurity Webinar with the Kaspersky and Gowling WLG.
