Learn how to protect the digital assets of your small business at the Cyber Security Workshop in Cairns on May 8.

Tourism Tropical North Queensland Chief Executive Officer Pip Close said many businesses protected their physical assets but did not give the same consideration to their digital information.

“This essential workshop will teach you to identify and understand the types of threats such as malware, phishing and denial of service, how to detect, block and neutralise attacks, and how to return to full operations,” she said.

“It is facilitated by Craig Searle who has more than 15 years of experience in the security industry, working in the finance, government, telecommunications and infrastructure sectors.

“He cofounded Hivint, Australia’s fastest growing cybersecurity consultancy firm.”

The Cyber Security Workshop is on Tuesday, May 8 at TTNQ, Level 2, 51 Esplanade, Cairns from 1pm-4pm. Entry is $20 per person and can be booked online.

The TNQ Tourism Small Business Development Program is for TTNQ member and non-member businesses that receive a significant portion of revenue from tourism and have less than 20 full-time equivalent employees.
