Topic: Technology/Computers
Increasingly, small businesses are the targets for cyberattacks. They do business online, store sensitive employee & customer data, and are suppliers to larger organizations (such as the government and vendors). However, small businesses lack the resources to prepare for an eventual cyberattack and recover from a successful one. Join us to begin planning your cyber strategy with local experts. You’ll work with experts on the following areas for your small business: Identify: What are the structures and practices you currently have in place in your small business to identify threats? Protect: What are the best practices you should have in place to protect your systems? Detect: What can you use in your small business to identify someone or something malicious? Respond & Recover: How will you deal with a breach if/when it occurs and how will your get your business back to normal after a breach?
