Webinar event details

Attendees to the virtual event will learn what minimal cyber security a small business needs in 2021. Cybercriminals are getting ever more sophisticated. Cybersecurity doesn’t have to be expensive, but basic controls are needed in every business today to prevent becoming a cybercrime victim.

The message is clear, it's not a matter of if but when criminals target your business. The good news is small businesses can prevent most cybercrime by implementing basic cybersecurity measures.
