Speaker Series:
Feeling overwhelmed by the cyber security horror stories in the news?

Join John Danahey of NerdsToGo on Tuesday, October 22, 2019

It’s difficult to hear the term “cybersecurity” without feeling fear, overwhelm, or even apathy. This is understandable since we are bombarded with scare tactics and expensive (and complicated) protection options.  The truth is, cybersecurity is critically important to your business. Effective protections will vary according to your business, and answers to a few core questions will help inform your plans.
In this interactive seminar (free of “technobabble”) you will gain:
An understanding of the data that you manage, broker, or require on behalf of operating your business
Learn how to identify trustworthy resources that can help you
Learn how to establish and measure progress towards your security goals
Come away with clear steps to start to build a plan for success

Tuesday, October 22, 2019   7:30 – 9:00 a.m.
9 Clayton Road, Middleboro, MA
