If you’re a small business, you’re a favorite target of threat actors. 60% of small companies that suffer a cyber-attack are out of business six months later. In this session, you will learn about the five (5) biggest cybersecurity threats you face and how to deal with them:

1. Hacking
2. Malware
3. Misuse of computer resources (intentional/unintentional)
4. Physical breaches
5. Social engineering

This session shows you how to go after low-hanging fruit – easy, practical ways to protect your business from these major cybersecurity threats. Through the use of actual case studies, we explore what can go wrong, and how cyber-breaches can be thwarted. Using best-practices and IT solutions designed for small businesses can go a long way towards protecting you and your company assets.
