The cyber security threats faced by small ISPs are typically not of the same order as those of their larger, more illustrious, peers in the ISP community. In part that explains why small ISPs typically spend a lower share of revenue on network security and invest proportionately less in in-house security expertise. That doesn’t mean small ISPs aren’t vulnerable to cyber-attacks, however. In fact lack of investment in cyber security is often leaving small ISPs more, rather than less, vulnerable to attacks than their larger peers. This webinar will discuss the unique threat environment faced by small ISPs. It will also explore new, more affordable, approaches to investing in the protection that they need as well as explore how selling security as a service can drive revenue as well as better security for the ISP’s own network.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
