Lunch & Learn IT Event at Llyndir Hall Hotel
April 6th 2017: 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
For over 33 years MWL Systems has been at the forefront of IT solutions and support. Our latest technology showcase highlights IT solutions to help your company thrive whilst protecting you from the ever increasing threats business faces.
The main focus of this event will be on data & network security.
Britain’s businesses are being urged to better protect themselves from cyber criminals as a result of high profile government research into cyber security revealed that two thirds of UK businesses had been hit by a cyber breach or attack in the past year.
The cost to businesses amounts to billions of pounds – as an example, the ‘Bogus boss’ scam alone has cost companies over £1.6billion worldwide
Significantly, nearly seven out of ten attacks on all firms involve viruses, spyware or malware, which can be prevented using the correct technology. Both the internal and external threats facing any organisation’s IT environment are greater than ever, and companies are rapidly recognising that with the constant challenge of maintaining network security, adapting to new and ever more sophisticated threats and managing often unpredictable costs, they need guidance to help them along the way.
Businesses are becoming increasingly reliant on IT and as the requirement to work anywhere, anytime grows, so does the risk of a cyberattack. That can pose a serious risk to organisations causing system failure, loss of critical data and financial loss.
As a business leader you may be asking yourself the following questions:
- How can I offer accessibility and flexibility to employees but still secure my company data?
- Who is accessing my company data?
- What if a laptop or phone is lost with confidential data on it?
- How can I protect my company from catastrophic loss due to a Cyber attacks?
- With ever growing demand on IT how can I control my spiralling costs?
- What products are available to really help my business thrive?
- What are other people in my position doing?
We will also be showcasing Hyper Converged Storage. What is Hyper Converged Storage I hear you ask! Good question. It is a software-defined approach to storage management that combines data storage, compute power, networking and virtualisation technologies in one physical unit that is managed as a single system.
