Webinar: An Ethical Approach to Mass Data Protection

22 Jun, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm
New Zealand Standard Time (NZST)
Event Type: 

The recent ransomware attack that spread like wildfire within with British NHS system caused chaos, with health care providers and others performing essential services affected. Keeping software versions up to date and not opening spam emails seem like simple security measure to take; but everyday within networked not-for-profits and governments people with low technical literacy are balancing time and budgets, and determining on the fly what is and what isn’t a risk to digital infrastructure, data, and people's privacy.

Join Asher Wolf and Lyndsey Jackson for an informed but informal conversation as we start breaking these issues down, humanising the technical risks, and providing a foundation of useful, practical guidance for organisations.

Don’t just forward this event onto your tech team and think the issue doesn’t affect you. The public expects a level of trust in organisations ability to understand risks and ask questions. This talk is for operational staff and managers - you don’t need to be technical to join in.


PRICE: $25 ($20 for Premium Members)
