    Design Tech Meetup: Cybersecurity for Architects

    Wednesday, August 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
    Virtual Event

    Protecting your firm’s data, systems, and people is a critical component of your practice. Every business faces more cyber threats in 2023 than ever before. Working in hybrid and distributed teams means a higher number of risks than the traditional in-office firm.

    It is of vital importance to (1) establish a clear set of cybersecurity policies and processes with your team and (2) deploy the right tools in order to combat the modern threats all businesses face. In this webinar, we’ll share the key elements of a successful cybersecurity plan for any architecture firm.

    This is an AIASF Design Technology Knowledge Community virtual meetup; all are welcome to attend; free RSVP requested.
