Last week, we hosted Cobweb Connect, an in-person event that provided attendees with a better understanding of our solutions. The event, held at Premier League Football Club Southampton’s ground, focused on cybersecurity and was titled Cyber @ St Mary’s.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Francis Gaffney, a former government advisor on security, shared insights on the tactics and psychology used by cybercriminals to compromise individuals and businesses.

David Tweedale from Mimecast introduced their latest gateway-less solution, which provides an easy entry point for businesses looking to add an extra layer of security. 

We also had Cornel Heijkoop from Acronis, who talked about the importance of backing up data using Microsoft backup, company backup, and implementing a disaster recovery plan. James Grove, IT Director at Southampton FC, gave a fascinating insight into the importance of implementing multi-layered protections to minimize risk in elite sports teams.

Oli Moazezzi, one of Cobweb’s Solution’s Architects, talked about how businesses often fail to utilize the functionality they have within their Microsoft 365 packages and how a review of their tenant can uncover gaps in their setup. 

Attendees then enjoyed lunch, which included a selection of artisan sandwiches and wraps. The sausage rolls were a particular hit with one impressed attendee, who called them “game changers.” Southampton legend Francis ‘Franny’ Benali also joined us for lunch, chatting with attendees and taking many selfies with them. 

The day concluded with a tour of St Mary’s, which Franny Benali led. Attendees got insights into what it is like to be a professional football player and saw behind the scenes of the changing rooms. The event was a huge success, with great feedback received, networking between attendees, and positive conversations on how Cobweb can partner with businesses to review and improve their current security standing.

Keep an eye out for the next #CobwebConnect, coming soon!
