    Workshop: Get your business online in a day


    Superpixel Labs, Galway


    You’ve got the business idea, the ambition, and the energy. You don’t have the website (or a pile of cash). How do you get your business online?

    You come to the Get Your Business Online in a Day workshop in Galway this August. You’ll walk in in the morning with only your laptop, and walk out in the afternoon with a website that will start working for your business that very day – no tech skills required.

    Here’s how it will work: The first part of the day will be taken by Teri Morris of the acclaimed Website in an Hour. By lunch, you’ll have set up your very own website with a tool called Strikingly. Make no mistake – you’ll have set it up, which means you’ll know how to manage it and make changes when necessary, no developers or designers required.

    After a break for lunch, digital strategist Niamh Lynch takes over. She’ll show you how to effectively and painlessly incorporate things like blogging, social media, and SEO into your online strategy. She’ll discuss how to best maintain and update your website and look at how to get it immediately working towards your business goals. By the end of this session, you’ll know what to put on your website and why.

    After a much-needed coffee break, Teri and Niamh will come together to round everything off, answering questions and providing advice.

    itSMF How do you deliver consistent quality of IT Services to your customers over 150 Countries?

    9-11am

    ICS, 87-89 Pembroke Road, Dublin 4


    ESP is a world class global IT solutions business with headquarters in the UK, supported by regional service delivery hubs in Hong Kong, Trinidad, Singapore, Colombia and Guam.

    They provide flexible 24/7 service desk, onsite and field services in over 150 countries worldwide and are a respected market leader with an enviable and loyal customer base of global, national and local businesses

    As ESP has grown and their markets expand, the challenge thrown down to them has been to consistently deliver a quality service across a dynamically changing customer base, which by its nature has meant extending their services across multiple countries.

    Through a combination of ESP staff and a network of like minded partner companies, they need to deliver the same service to their customers whether its being delivered in the UK, Mexico, Laos or Guatemala. The customer experience, touch points and controls need to be consistent and they need to be able to ensure the same quality of service.

    So the gauntlet that was thrown down five years ago was how to achieve this, whilst also facing the fact that the company was growing at a rate of 20% per year and constantly evolving its service offerings.

    The answers to the ‘how’ will hopefully be answered during the presentation, but a combination of best practice, investment in great toolsets and people, continuous reviewing and improving plus a large amount of hard work and commitment from the team has meant they have been able to rise to the challenge.

    Espion: Adopting a multi-layered approach to ransomware defence


    Conrad Hotel, Dublin 2


    In this seminar Espion and cloud partner Zscaler will provide practical advice on how organisations should be developing and executing a multi-layered defensive strategy to protect their business against the rising threat of ransomware.

    A ransomware infection can be devastating to an organization and recovery can be a difficult, extensive process without expert advice. An overwhelming amount of businesses have fallen victim in recent months, facing loss of sensitive information, disruption to regular operations, financial losses as well as often irreversible reputational damage.

     Espion advises organisations to take a multi-layered approach to their defensive strategy; from raising security awareness across their organization to leveraging the cloud to apply extensive overarching system defences – a one stop shop solution is not sufficient.

    Overview:
    – The evolution of ransomware – how it has evolved, the current threat landscape and why organizations need to act now
    – How organisations fall victim – the most common infection methods examined
    – What a ransomware attack looks like – including real life examples
    – Ten steps to take immediately following a suspected incident
    – A multi-layered approach – how to prevent incidents through a multi-layered defence
    – The people factor – implementing security awareness across your entire organisation

    The seminar will be followed by a panel Q&A session.

    Speakers:
    – Chris Hodson M.Inst.ISP, director of information security EMEA, Zscaler
    – Conor Gavin, lead consultant, Espion – a BSI Professional Services Company

    This is a free event so places are limited. Register at https://www.espiongroup.com/events/adopting-a-multi-layered-approach-to-ransomware-defence/
