Hackers are everywhere. Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your business. Network and learn at WCD’s next Business Education Series-CYBERSECURITY.

Cybersecurity Essentials for Small to Medium-Sized Businesses: Best Practices Anyone Can Adopt

Cyberattacks against small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) have more than tripled since 2011. In fact, 60% of SMB’s that suffer a cyberattack are out of business within six months. Unfortunately, many of the best practices are geared towards large enterprises or government organizations. The good news is that cybersecurity doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. WCD is pleased to present its third Business Education Series on how to avoid online hackers and protect your company from cyberattacks.

This seminar will cover specific and practical cybersecurity controls that every small business owner can implement right away, to improve their security and reduce their risk of cybercrime.

  • Discussion Topics Include:
  • What exactly is Cybersecurity
  • Why do I need a Cybersecurity Plan
  • Why is Cybersecurity important to my business
  • Understanding the threat landscape in today’s business climate
  • Types of Threats
  • Password Policies
  • Backups & Recovery
  • Firewalls
  • Antivirus Protection
  • File Access Restriction
  • Data Encryption
  • Improving Security
  • Avoiding Scams & Phishing

A 2018 report from the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) suggest that 93% of data breaches could have been prevented by simply implementing many of the basic security measures that our guest speakers will be covering in this next Business Educational Series event. Please join us to learn how you can proactively protect your business.
