Hodge and Tramshed – CIPD Certified Webinar to Focus on Remote Working and it’s Impact on Cyber Security

Hodge and Tramshed Tech will be holding a webinar on August 5th entitled “The changing threat landscape”, which will look at how businesses have changed their working structure in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, with remote working becoming a lot more prevalent.

The free to attend webinar will look at how this new working landscape creates increased vulnerabilities to a business and its infrastructure, ultimately increasing the threat of cyber-attacks.

Attendees will hear from Damon Rands, Founder of Wolfberry Cyber and Professor Pete Burnap, the Professor of Data Science & Cybersecurity, School of Computer Science and Informatics, Cardiff University. Both speakers will be focusing on how to minimise the increased exposure to risk and how AI can help prevent cyber-attacks. The session is certified by the CIPD.

Hodge and Tramshed Tech, the Cardiff-based co-working space, has been in partnership since January 2020 to provide a series of events that bring together innovative start-ups and established businesses to develop solutions to common challenges. By hosting discussions around some of these challenges, the events will provide potential solutions and support interaction between problem owners and solutions providers.

The first roundtable was held in January and focused on machine learning and bots and how these can help enterprises be more effective operationally. This was followed with a breakfast meet up in February to demystify the use of robots and AI. Next week’s webinar will be the first event since the UK’s lockdown in response to Covid-19.  Each event topic is identified based on prevailing trends and opportunities identified by Hodge and Tramshed Tech.
