Small Business Security Series for Business Leaders
If you are an executive, senior leader or business leader you won’t want to miss this extremely valuable educational series.
Of the $86T world economy, $6T of that is cyber crime and it’s growing rapidly. Criminals are investing back into the “trade” as any business would and trading skills to develop new tactics for attacking your business data. What are you doing to protect your own organization?
The FBI discourages businesses from paying ransom after an attack as it encourages this behavior. Unfortunately too many organizations are left with no other choice. In 2018, 46% of all US businesses hit with ransomware paid the ransom and only 26% of those were able to unlock their files after paying the ransom. How would your business be impacted if you couldn’t unlock your data?
Come join us at one or all sessions of the six-part educational series on how to protect your organization and fight the war on cyber crime. Whether you have adopted some security measures or many, protecting your organization needs to come from multiple angles. You’ll learn from the best in the industry, you’ll learn what your next move needs to be, and you’ll get valuable information to start fighting the war.
Session 2 (April 25th): How cyber criminals use employees to gain access to your company data and how you can reduce your risk
Think you have the best technologies in place to protect your data and that’s all you need? Think again. Your employees are your biggest data security risk and they don’t do it on purpose. Cyber criminals focus on low hanging fruit, humans. Worst of all it’s no longer just limited to just phishing emails, criminals use other methods and tactics to gain information that allows them access to company data.
In this educational session you will learn:
- What is social engineering
- Latest threads and top techniques used by cyber-criminals
- Learn what you can do to take measures to significantly reduce your exposure
Come and have breakfast with us and find out how you can make an immediate impact on reducing your risk to ransomware.
