We hear about it every day – website breaches, cyber-attacks, lost data and digital hijacking! Let’s face it, we live in a digital world that needs our continuous attention. Especially when it comes to protecting our business! And if you think the number of hacking threats has declined, due to COVID-19, think again. The number has actually increased. 

This presentation will inform, educate, and provide helpful insight into the importance of protecting your website against cyberattacks and the mistakes made by many business owners that leave their websites vulnerable to hackers. 

We’ve found that the overwhelming number of website breaches that occur are preventable and we’ve seen the business and personal impact of a breach that occur as a result.  We’ll share case studies that will provide valuable insight into the importance of website security.  We’ll also share steps that can be taken to minimize the risks. 

In addition, this free presentation will provide insight into the role that Google plays and will enable business owners to understand that if Google identifies a website as being breached, the site can be penalized or worse, which can significantly impact Marketing, Sales and Customer Service efforts.  Googles goal is to insure a safer and more secure web and as of March 15, 2020, Google deemed 1,697,960 active websites as being dangerous due to Phishing.  Many of these site owners are unaware that their website has been breached. 

Be sure to attend this insightful workshop – you’ll be glad you did!
