Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

This is a FREE workshop and space is limited.  Pre-registration is required.

Did you know that 50 percent of all cyber attacks are targeted at small businesses? 

In this workshop, you will learn cybersecurity threats to business today and how to minimize your risk. The conversation will cover hacker strategies, common mistakes, oversights that can cause vulnerabilities, and relevant cyber incidents.  Cybersecurity can seem complicated at first, but our presentation simplifies the conversation using straight talk, not tech talk. 

In this workshop, we will:

  • Introduce recent, relevant cyber incidents

  • Discuss the motives and methods of cybercriminals today

  • Discuss the potential effects of a cyber incident or breach on a business

  • Review the details and importance of Technology Use Policies and Incident Response plans

  • Discuss how to build a culture of cybersecurity defenders in your organization

  • Review tools available to help protect your company and employees.

You will leave with a better overall awareness of cybersecurity and steps you can take to reduce vulnerabilities and protect your business. The better you understand cyber threats, the better you can prepare yourself and your organization.
