AIJA webinar: Cybersecurity


21 June 2018

As our organisations go through digital transformation, they become completely dependent on enterprise software and digital processes to keep the business going. The cyber threat landscape also keeps growing. For example, the amount of phishing emails containing a form of ransomware grew to 97.25% during Q3 2016, up from 92% in Q1 2016. This implies that there are two kind of businesses today: "those that have been hacked and those that will be hacked" (FBI Director R. Mueller, 2012).

Join us on 21 June 2018 for an interactive webinar with Öykü Işık, Assistant Professor of Information Systems Management at Vlerick Business School. We will first cover the basics of cybersecurity and then focus on data breaches and the threat of ransomware. 

A link to the webinar session will be sent to registered participants only.
