Small businesses are now the target for over 60% of all cyber security attacks. It doesn’t make any difference if you’re a small, medium, or large business. You are vulnerable as well as all the records you retain for your customers, employees and vendors. Your odds of being hacked are very good; just one single successful cyber attack can put you out of business and set you up for legal ramifications.
Make plans now to attend this two-part series where you will walk away armed with specific actions you can take to protect your business, your clients, your vendors, and your family from cybercrime. This is a non-technical workshop presented in plain English for small businesses of all types.
