Protecting your Business: Understanding and Mitigating Cybersecurity Threats

Businesses are exposed to more threats from hackers, scammers, viruses, and malware than ever before. In fact, 58 percent of cyber attack victims are small businesses. When those instances occur, 60 percent of small and medium businesses are forced to suspend operations and, in many cases, never reopen for businesses.

Don’t let your business become a cybersecurity casualty. Join SCORE Bucks County’s two-hour lunch and learn session, “Protecting your Business: Understanding and Mitigating Cybersecurity Threats” on Oct. 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at James-Lorah Memorial Home, 132 N. Main St., in Doylestown.

SCORE Bucks County mentor Charlie Morris will reflect on his nearly 40-year career as a software engineer, architect and Chief Technology Officer in leading this informative workshop. Charlie will describe the cybersecurity landscape and help small business owners understand the various threats and their sources. He will highlight a model for mitigating the threats that educates employees, institutes best practices, and utilizes best-of-breed technologies. The workshop will close with a demonstration of some of the more common cybersecurity software tools.

In this workshop SCORE Bucks County will:

  • Review the cyberthreats landscape facing the small business community.
  • Help attendees understand the “People, Process, and Technology” aspects of mitigating cyberthreats.
  • Demonstrate tools that can help business owners ensure the security of the digital aspects of their business such as malware detection, password managers and backup tools.

Cost is only $20, which includes lunch. Space is limited.
