Today’s SMBs cannot afford to ignore cybersecurity and think they are immune to a hacker’s wrath just because they are too small for a hacker to notice. Trying to fly under the radar is not a way to protect your company or yourself. Although not technically trained in IT or cybersecurity, often the responsibility and oversight of cybersecurity falls on accounting’s shoulders. This enlightening presentation will debunk common myths about cybersecurity; discuss ways SMBs can prevent a cyber-attack; reveal the #1 cyber-risk in your company; and review the ROI of cybersecurity.
