Do you have financial information on your computer system? How about trade secrets, patents, intellectual property, or client information?

Hackers want your data – they sell it to your competitors and startup businesses in other countries. There is a huge black market for information that your company has. Yes, they want small business data because it is valuable and easy to get.

Learn what the hot cyber concerns are for small businesses, what can be done to protect your business from a costly attack, plus what are the real and potential effects of cyber-crime. Smart businesses are preparing for cyber criminals that are aggressively targeting small businesses.

Learn about:

  • Current cyber threats

  • How to create strong passwords
  • Website security and why it matters
