2017 Certificate in Small Business Cybersecurity Strategy

ONE WEEK ONLY!
REGISTER BY 5PM ON FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 2017
TO RECEIVE THIS SPECIAL REGISTRATION RATE

No business, small or large, can afford to ignore cybersecurity.  According to a recent Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 60 percent of cyber-attacks target small to medium-sized businesses.  The most prevalent risk to a small business is ransomware; with the FBI estimating over 4,000 U.S. businesses are infected by ransomware every day. With cybersecurity threats on the rise, increasing cyber-crimes not only affect individuals but small to medium-sized businesses. Spear-phishing has improved over the past few years and is now extremely difficult to detect.  You do not have to do everything, just something.

  • Learn how to establish basic security practices and policies from a technical perspective such as: keeping a clean machine and operating system, protection from viruses, malware and other online threats, and securing your wi-fi network by attending this security awareness training.  Work with banks or credit card processors and employ best practices to ensure that the most trusted anti-fraud services are being used.  You will walk away with the tools needed to detect and protect both yourself and your customer’s personal information in order to keep from becoming a victim.

  • The Illinois Small Business Development Center, in partnership with the Turner Center for Entrepreneurship, at Bradley University will be presenting a series of cybersecurity seminars and webinars to teach small businesses how to protect their and customers against cybercriminals, security breaches and inside threats.

  • This series consists of seven seminars and two webinars.  The seven seminars will be offered as a lunch and learn platform.

  • Participants that attend all nine events will be awarded a Certificate in Small Business Cybersecurity Strategy to emphasize your commitment to protect financial information.

  • You may register for the complete series or pick and choose any of the seminars and webinars.  You may also register up to one additional guest.
