Cybersecurity has long been avoided - both in action as well as in discussion. It's that dreaded subject that leads us to switch off our computers when things go wrong, in the hope that it reboots and fixes the issue.

Andrew Fitzmaurice knows his stuff. He knows why cybersecurity should be important and why IC folk need to be up to date on the subject, especially now remote working is here for the long haul. Not only does he delve into the subject with enthusiasm and intrigue, but he also breaks it down in a way that's appealing and insightful for the audience.

From research reports, Andrew reveals that there has been a 161% increase in the use of high-risk apps and websites, and with home workers at an all-time high, 1 in 5 workers have not been trained on cybersecurity.
