“The Tesseract Academy is committed to helping organisations of all sizes, from startups, to SMEs to corporations. As part of our mission, we offer free resources to business who otherwise can’t afford them. The increased wave of digitalisation that UK business have experienced during and post-covid has also made them especially vulnerable to cyber-attacks. For this reason we decided to release a free course to support them on both cyber-defense and compliance.”
On a similar note, Tom Hayes shares is views:
“It’s clear that GDPR is just the beginning of more regulation that will follow in the next few years. AI ethics is on the horizon, with EU already having made its first move with the AI act. Business that prepare themselves now will find themselves in more favourable circumstances in the future.”
