SME Academy - Cyber Security
Many SMEs mistakenly conclude that their valuable assets are not of interest to cyber criminals. This could not be further from the truth. Cyber criminals do not discriminate. They are actually shifting their focus to SMEs. SME's defence are often not as advanced as their larger counterparts, or quite frankly, often not present at all which makes them easier targets. 

In the Blue Arca Cyber Security workshop for SMEs we focus on you and your company. Our goal is to help you understand how to indentify and protect your sensitive data, information and systems. We'll guide you through the process of balancing people, processes and technology, to effectively protect your business from reputationals damage, disruption of your business and financial losses.

China Seminar - Chasing the Chinese Consumer
What is going to happen to the Chinese economy in the coming five years? This is one of the most important questions for those interested in the world's propects. The country confronts a number of principal challenges. A major one will be how to manage the expected slowdown as economic growth is slated to come from an increase in domestic consumption and from the service sector rather than from investment in infrastructure, housing and heavy industry.

This 23rd China Seminar aims to shed light on these developments and how companies could position themselves to profit from the same.
