Free Cyber Security Workshop

Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly common and are one of the major risks that a business can face these days.

Charles Sturt University is hosting a free information session to learn more about cyber security, the treats facing small to medium enterprises and how to protect your business.

This will be held on Wednesday 24 July 2019 commencing at 6pm at Building 1305, Panorama Avenue, Bathurst.
