Ensuring Safety of Your Virtual Event from Cybercrime – EventTitans

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the popularity of virtual events. However, sadly, the threat of cybercrime has also increased. Cybercriminals are constantly looking for vulnerable companies and their customers to exploit vulnerable networks. In this blog post, we will share some important tips to save your virtual event from cybercriminals.

Create awareness

Awareness is the key to fighting cybercrime. According to research, negligence and human error are responsible for 90% of data breaches. If event hosts, guests and attendees are more aware of the methods that cybercriminals can use to attack them, they will be able to remain more alert and careful.
When sending invitations to your event, you can include an additional document to warn people of potential threats. For example, you can advise all of your attendees to make sure they attend your event using only a private Wi-Fi network. You can also encourage them to back up their data and download relevant security software and apps on the devices they use to attend your event.

Check organizational security measures

You can’t expect guests and attendees to take all the necessary security measures if your organization isn’t taking cybersecurity seriously. Make sure you have a team of IT security experts to take care of all the necessary security precautions and measures. It’s also good to get some network penetration testing before the event to learn about existing vulnerabilities on your network.If you cannot provide strong network security, then it is best to use a third-party application or software to host your virtual event. Make sure you choose a reputable company that can serve all your needs.

Regulate and monitor access to Virtual Events

Just because it’s a virtual event doesn’t mean you can let everyone in. Be on the lookout for whom you invite and who will attend the event. Even if you want to keep your event open to the public to attract more attendees, it is important to monitor everything. If you notice any suspicious activity before, during or after the event, do not hesitate to inform the authorities and take the necessary measures.
