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.

All participants will receive The Small Business Cybersecurity Workbook , access to online resources gathered, and curated by the SBDC, as well as a Certificate of Completion.

Highlights include:

  • Issues driving cybercrime
  • Factors affecting how your technology gets compromised
  • Critical steps to take to protect your business
  • Understanding the terminology 
  • Tips and techniques for making passwords easy and secure
  • Building the human firewall with your team
  • Securing wireless networks
  • Using cloud computing
  • Understanding the “Internet of Things” and it’s vulnerability
  • Small business do’s and don’ts for cybersecurity
  • Firewalls, encryption, social engineering, two-factor authentication, and phishing
