Tech firm, Tros Technologies has offered free cybersecurity training to help small and medium enterprises, as well as big corporations alike in the country tackle the rising trend of cyber risk.

He continued, “Working remotely has its perks, but also comes with distractions and risks. We’re seeing a huge rise in COVID-19 scams which can pose a major risk to the security of our local businesses.”
