Cybersecurity: How to Prevent Potential Threats
Date: 10/26/2017
Time: 09:00 AM
Price: $25
Event Type: Training Event

 

The global cost of cybercrime is predicted to reach 2 trillion by 2019. 

 

Cybersecurity is a critical piece to every business, but many business owners are not sure of the steps they need to take.  This workshop can get you started! 

 

You will learn how to proactively protect the data that is important to your business. Your customers expect you to have secure systems - do you?  What if all of your systems stopped tomorrow - do you have a back-up?  Where is it stored?  Do you train your employees to identify potential attacks? Who has access to your data in your business?  We will look at these topics and give you solutions.  Many are easily implemented. 

 

Presenters:

Albert Whale

Mr. Whale has an extensive background with protecting everything from International Corporations to Small to Mid-sized Businesses (SMBs).  His background extends from Application Development & Security, Training and Enterprise solutions as well.
