Cyber Security Workshop

According to a recent report published by the Better Business Bureau, Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMB) are behind in key areas that prevent them from effectively managing cyber risk.

The report reveals only 20% conduct internal threat assessments, about 20% have threat monitoring and analysis capabilities, 15% have an Incident Response Plan and 15% purchase cyber insurance.

With cyber-attacks like ransomware on the rise and data privacy becoming increasingly critical, why are SMBs underprepared? The traditional assumption is that SMBs are not aware of cyber threats.

Do you have the resources, expertise and information to effectively manage your business's cyber risk? 

Join us to:

  • learn what you can do to minimize the likelihood and impact of cybersecurity events
  • receive actionable guidance in 5 key areas to help immediately improve your cyber risk management
  • enjoy light fare and beverages while networking with other SMB representatives
