Cyber Attacks No Longer a Big Biz Problem

twitterI saw this announcement from Small Business Trends. It sounds like a very interesting event. Anita Campbell is hosting this discussion with other small business owners and a team of Symantec security experts to discuss what you need to be aware of and what you can do to protect your business.  They will cover the following:

  1. What is a targeted attack and how it differs from other cyber threats.
  2. Why small businesses are being targeted (so you know what criminals are after!)
  3. How Mac users are being targeted — using Macs is no longer a pass.
  4. How to make your employees aware of the threats, including training
  5. Defending your business to avoid dollar losses.

When:
Thursday, July 19 at 4pm New York time (1pm Los Angeles time).
