FEB 29 | Cybersecurity is a Competitive Advantage for Your Small Business (20240229)


Description
You’ve worked hard to start and grow your business. Are you taking the steps necessary to protect it from cyber criminals? As small businesses have become more reliant upon data and technology to operate and scale a modern business, cybersecurity has become a fundamental risk that must be addressed alongside other business risks. Customers, supply chain partners, banks, insurers, etc. are increasingly expecting businesses of all sizes to have a strong cybersecurity posture.

A common misconception for small businesses is that they are too small to be targets of a cyber attack. However, size doesn’t matter to a cyber criminal. They are targeting anyone that serves their interest—often in order to gain your credentials and financial reward. Sometimes they are indiscriminate of business size or mission; sometimes they are targeting you because of your role in a supply chain.
The cybersecurity risks to our interconnected systems are complex and pervasive, and it is not reasonable to expect most small businesses to be experts in cybersecurity. Most small business owners have limited time, resources, and cybersecurity expertise, which presents a challenge to setting up a cybersecurity program.

Learn practical steps you can take to begin protecting your business (and personal) assets from cyber attacks with this free webinar.
