About the webinar

October is Cybersecurity Awareness month and we acknowledge it with two sessions addressed to M&E and IM professionals who wish to increase their knowledge and confidence in regards to data security. The first session will address the top five data security risks that professionals working with data should be aware of and the second session will dive into best practices for designing roles in the ActivityInfo platform.
