Cyber Security For Small and Mid-Size Businesses


Tuesday, October 24 | 1:30 – 5:00 PM (followed by Networking Reception)

In conjunction with the 7th Annual Cyber Security Summit, this standalone half-day event on Tuesday, October 24, puts the focus on small and mid-size businesses.

Many normal business transactions can open the door to cyber theft or attack. If your business is not big enough to have dedicated resources to manage security strategies, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about best practices for keeping your data secure and responding after you’ve been compromised.

Who should attend?

Business owners and their payroll, HR and IT staff.
