Is your cybersecurity ready for peak season?


A free webinar this week will see experts discuss the importance of website security during peak periods.

Accelerating website speed, monitoring customers’ journey and offering them choice are all vital elements to increasing conversions this Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas.

What is often overlooked is the importance of strengthening the security of a site around peak traffic periods to avoid crashing on the most important weekends of the retail year – which could cost a business both in money and reputational terms.

The ‘Peak Season Cybersecurity’ webinar at 10.30am on Wednesday 2nd October will see a panel of cybersecurity and retail specialists offer top industry advice on bolstering a site’s security to maximise sales this winter.

Steve Todd, technical director at Studio Mashbo, will join Mark Blackhurst, co-founder of Digital Next, Secarma technical director Holly Grace Williams and UKFast’s director of training and education Arlene Bulfin to discuss the topic.

Williams will also join an expert panel at a private BusinessCloud roundtable on Wednesday 16th October to discuss the importance of pentesting and practical steps businesses can take.

Pentesting involves bringing in external companies to execute a ‘mock attack’ to highlight weaknesses.

If you can suggest a speaker for the roundtable, which will be reported in the Q4 edition of BusinessCloud magazine, contact editor Jonathan Symcox at [email protected].
