Event Description:

“Could you afford to lose $117,000? According to one estimate, that’s how much a digital data breach can cost a small business. Add to that startling number the fact that it takes an average of three days to stop a cyberattack, and the potential financial and operational damage becomes worryingly real.” The Week (April 16, 2018)

Recent data breaches at major corporations demonstrate the challenges businesses face in protecting themselves and their stakeholders from cyberattacks launched by hackers and organized crime.

The Greater Reading Chamber Alliance and Weidenhammer have partnered to bring you a vitally important workshop on one of today’s key challenges effecting all businesses. Is your organization prepared to meet this challenge? If not, what would a cyberattack cost your business? How will your customers react, and how would it impact your reputation?

Join us for this crucial workshop every leader and business owner should attend. Learn about various types of cybercrimes and cybercriminals. See WHY cybersecurity is everyone’s biggest concern and the impact cybercrime has on businesses.

Cybersecurity experts will share the importance of:

  • Developing your cybersecurity strategy
  • Robust policies and procedures
  • Educating users about their role in preventing cyber attacks
  • Technology available to protect against data breaches
  • Government regulation’s impact on cyber security
