Hackers and malware and breaches, oh my!

Small businesses don't often have the resources to have an information security professional on staff. It can be daunting to know what to do, especially since it seems every day there is another threat on the news. With limited resources, is it even worth trying? And who is going to attack my little company anyway?

In this session we will discuss threats, both rational and sensationalized, and talk about what you really need to do to address your risk. We will also touch on physical security and social engineering, as technology can only protect your organization to a point.

You do not need to be a cyber security expert to attend this session!

Sample Topics:
*Prank calls resulting in broken windows and assaults
*Ransomed computer systems
*Training and awareness
