Did you know 83% of small and medium-sized enterprises cannot financially recover from cyber threats?
There are all manner of sobering statistics emerging about cybercrime threats. Did you know a simple PDF file could be used to infiltrate any size business? Or that 43% of all data breaches involve small and medium-sized businesses? Jaw dropping facts and statistics like that could quickly become water cooler talk at any business – and regularly do – at a rate that is alarming across every industry, in every country, the world over.
And yet while the world goes about its usual business, hacking, phishing, ransomware attacks, data-theft – all types of cybercrime, is on the rise. This ever-present shadow world evolves as it innovates, creating billions of dollars, becoming more sophisticated, unleashing ever more creative and frequent schemes and cyber attacks. The threat to your business (and your client’s) is very real.
At Gijima we know knowledge is powerful. You can learn more about how an enterprise can build a stronger defense with the insights and expertise in the Microsoft Digital Defense Report. This report encompasses learnings from security experts, practitioners, and defenders at Microsoft to empower people everywhere to defend against cyberthreats. Furthermore, we invite you to attend an “Introduction to cybersecurity” webinar to be held on 18 and 25 October 2022 (select either date); alternatively we invite IT leaders along with their teams to apply for Exclusive Microsoft-sponsored Security XDR (Extended Detection and Response) deep-dive workshop. This 4-hour workshop, facilitated by Matt Micka, Gijima’s Principal Solutions Architect specialising in Microsoft Cloud Security and Azure Architecture, will strive to answer any pressing questions important to your team and business. You can find more detail about the webinar speakers and agenda, and apply to either webinar or workshop (several dates available). These events are Microsoft-sponsored and are at no cost to you.

The global cybercrime industry is estimated to be worth 1.5 billion US dollars*. We all know cybersecurity has never been more critical. Despite this many South African businesses of all sizes, even with in-house IT support, do not utilise the advanced, comprehensive solutions of the Microsoft licenses they have competently invested in. Cybersecurity threats are always changing and staying on top of them is vital. Getting ahead of them is paramount. You can do that with Gijima, a Microsoft Gold partner. You can apply for an assessment of your cybersecurity at an Exclusive Industry Leaders’ Advanced Cybersecurity Workshop hosted by Gijima, and sponsored by Microsoft at no cost to you. This offer is available for a limited time only. Alternatively, join an “Introduction to cybersecurity” webinar on either 18 or 15 October 2022 hosted by Gijima. Several workshop dates are available. Click here to apply for either, and for a list of webinar speakers, topics, and agenda.
As a Microsoft Gold partner we support Microsoft’s efforts to come together as a community, to share our expertise, research, intelligence and insights. With a 1,070 percent increase in ransomware attacks year-over-year between July 2020 and June 2021, staying on top of attack trends—such as ransomware and supply chain threats—is more important than ever. And So is the need for South African businesses to protect their supply chains: An extremely connected and complex supply chain makes it a ripe target for cybercriminals. Open source supply chain attacks are up 650 percent year-over-year from 20204. Microsoft shares more here.
