Think your business is too small to be targeted by cyber-criminals.  Think again.  Small businesses represent desirable targets because they usually have more money in the bank than an individual would have, and less security than their bigger enterprise business peers.

In this seminar we will be discussing the current state of affairs relative to cybercrime and cybersecurity.  In addition we will teach you practical skills designed to help you avoid becoming a victim yourself.  This program has been updated for 2016, and contains new information.

You will learn:

  • Why cyber-attacks happen.
  • What are the goals of cyber-criminals
  • How to spot a phishing email (the #1 attack vector)
  • How cyber-attacks start and how to keep them from being extended.
  • How to create a more secure computer network,
  • How cybersecurity training may give you the best bang for the buck.
  • What to do if your business is breached?
