HIRSCH’S Hillcrest held their monthly networking morning with guest speaker, Tyron Smith, the owner of Cyber Support recently.

Public relations officer Taryn Taylor said, “Business owners came to learn more about how to save data and ensure their information is safe. Company representatives and owners had 60 seconds to speak about their company.

Smith said that a study showed 98% of businesses suffering total data loss, will go out of business within two years as a direct result. “Rather be safe and back up your work on an external drive. Your information is your business, don’t be afraid to spend on an anti-virus and take precautions,” he added.

The next networking function will be held on 19 October at 9 am. If you want to learn more about the law, come through to Hirsch’s Hillcrest. To RSVP, please contact Taryn Taylor on 031761 7500.
