Ask the Expert: How to Secure your Business from a Cyberattack

No business is too small to get visited by scofflaws and computer viruses out to steal your content or worse, valuable data you’ve got stored on a computer or device. Most media stories are about big name corporations getting hacked. When a small business gets attacked, the damage can be devastating.

Tim Carlisle, a deep expert in cybersecurity and on keeping proprietary information out of the hands of criminals, will show us how every computer connected to the internet is vulnerable to attack, and specific actions we can take to minimize the risk of being hacked.

Key points Tim will cover:

  • “I’m a solo practitioner. Who’d want to target me?”
  • Ways prying eyes can snoop into your email and how to stop them
  • How to secure financial records
  • Understand how client data on your computer may be vulnerable to theft and how to protect it
  • Steps to take to protect your intellectual property
  • Your liability if you lose customer data and whether insurance covers it
  • What you MUST do if you work on a Windows computer

Tim will tell mind-bending stories, such as about attacks that could have been prevented with one simple action, and provide rock solid advice you can carry out immediately.
