Internationally renowned speakers will outline the ways and means of maintaining and promoting Cybersecurity against the growing menace of hackers and viruses at a forthcoming lecture in Auckland.

Organised by CreateOps and ‘Y-Tech,’ the event will be held from 930 am to 230 pm on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at the Manukau Campus of the Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT) located at the Corner of Manukau Station Road and Davies Avenue.

Founder-Director Edwina Mistry said that the event is open and free for all.

“We urge parents and teachers also to attend and encourage young adults, along with tertiary and university students and benefit from the talks. This is a unique opportunity to hear from international speakers and experts from local companies such as Kordia, Air New Zealand, Datacom and Xero on how to be Cybersafe,” she said.

‘Y-tech?’ is an event run by Youth for Youth, she added.
