Register for our webinar: Cyber Security for the Sports sector

2021 Webinar

Following the success of our webinars in 2020, we are keen to invite you to our first webinar of 2021 'Cyber Security for the Sports Sector', which we are hosting on the 22nd January 2021 at 1pm. 

Cyber threats are becoming a big issue for sports clubs and associations, with some high-profile sporting bodies being affected by cyber attacks last year. In this webinar, we have partnered with Microtrading | part of the Air IT group, who provide specialist support for clubs and who are going to give us an insight into the specific threats facing clubs, and how clubs can protect themselves, their data and their revenue. We will also provide a short guide into the insurance policies that a sports club can purchase in order to protect themselves in 2021 and beyond.

Please see below for details and how to register your attendance in our webinar.
