Businesses have never been at a greater risk from cyber criminals. Since Aspire was established in 2006, we have seen the threat of cybercrime evolve dramatically, with more and more businesses contacting Aspire for support with cyber security solutions.

With the current cost of living crisis already impacting businesses across the region, we felt it was essential to launch an event that informs business leaders how to effectively protect their digital assets and infrastructures, ensuring their continued operations.
