Many people think that cyber security refers to the software and monitoring that protect their email, operating system, network, and printing devices from malicious attack or data theft. Admittedly, this is a large and important part of cyber security for businesses. But management and employees also play a significant role in making sure your company is protected.
In this month of cybersecurity awareness, AmCham Ghana, on October 27, 2021, collaborates with one of the leading business advisory firms KPMG for a virtual meeting on Emerging Cyber Threats in the business environment.
