Lack of face-to-face meetings. Event cancellations. Cybersecurity businesses might be feeling that COVID-19 is causing “lost opportunities” to build customer relationships and trust where it matters.

With long and complex sales cycles that require “high touch”, in-person communication, previously a face-to-face meeting could make or break a sale involving a major decision. So how can your cybersecurity business continue to grow amid the lack of face-to-face meetings at this time?

Join us in this insightful live webcast in collaboration with SGTech to ask questions and hear from our expert panelists –

Jonathan Phua, Co-founder and CEO of InsiderSecurity, a successful and homegrown cybersecurity startup;

Ian Monteiro, Partner and Executive Director of Image Engine, Organiser of GovWare, the base event of Singapore International Cyber Week (SICW); and

Jean-Luc Khaou, Chief Business Officer of eShard, a leading specialist in embedded security technology.

Each will share their unique perspectives navigating unchartered waters of business during COVID-19.
