Cyber Security Seminar For Small Business Owners Thursday

This article was originally published here.

If you’re a small business owner, there’s a local event on cyber security happening Thursday that you don’t want to miss. You can never be too careful when it comes to the sensitive information that can be potentially compromised by hackers. Jason Rinker with Stronghold Data tells News Talk KZRG why small business owners are under attack.

“Number one, you’re data is important to you. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are. One of the things they do is use ransomware, so they can lock you out and hopefully get money from you. Second, small businesses do business with larger entities, so if I can compromise a small business, I can get into a much larger business, using that smaller business as a stepping stone. Whether you’re in HR, the finance department, the president, CEO, Chief Operating Officer, you should be at this event.”
