Thank you to everyone that attended this event.

Webinar Summary

Across the board, registered Charities of all types are facing the difficult challenge of still having to maintain secure and compliant systems, but with much reduced funding and resources. In this webinar, Adriaan Bekker, Technical Director at Softwerx, leans on over 20 years of Microsoft experience working with Charities. Adriaan explains in plain English how Charities should be reviewing their existing Microsoft spend and taking advantage of an increased Microsoft Security portfolio.

From their recent study, Softwerx found 9 out of 10 of IT decision makers are struggling to effectively manage their cyber security and have scope to leverage their Microsoft investment. The chances are that your organisation can benefit from a number of steps to secure and simplify your IT, with a Microsoft First approach.

This webinar is aimed at Business Leaders and key decision makers who work within a formally registered Charitable Organisation.Whilst the subject matter at the core is technical in nature, all aspects are explained in a clear non-technical business language.


 The unique set of challenges facing Charities

 The ‘art of what’s possible’ with Microsoft Security

 Why a ‘Microsoft First’ strategy makes commercial sense

 Case Study: A real-world modern-workplace Charity

Speaker: Adriaan Bekker - Technical Director of Softwerx

Adriaan has been with Softwerx since 2002, during which time he has built up a deep understanding of the charitable sector through working closely with leading national charities such as Kidney Research and YMCA to advise them on their IT security.

Adriaan has over 20 years’ experience working with Microsoft and over 10 years’ experience at C-Level. His extensive experience, together with having completed both IT and business degrees, means he has the insight and ability to successfully bridge the gap between technical, commercial and compliance requirements. He ensures your organisation stays secure in an ever changing landscape.

Customer Feedback

“In terms of Microsoft, Adriaan really does have deep-technical knowledge, but what sets him apart is his ability to articulate and explain all of the technology in a clear and understandable manner.”
