About the event

On average, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) lose $25,000 per cyber-attack. SMBs make up 43% of cyber-attacks annually with 46% of these attacks hitting small businesses with 1,000 or fewer employees. And employees of small businesses experience 350% more social engineering attacks than those at larger enterprises. 

Worse yet --- approximately 60% of small businesses shut down within six months of a data breach or cyber-attack.

Robust cybersecurity is empowering. As cyber threats continue to evolve, investing in cybersecurity not only safeguards your organization but also contributes to overall business viability.  

Digital strategist and cyber expert Jeremy Swenson, MSST, MBA joins us from Abstract Forward Consulting as our lead panelist. Karen Anderson, Technical Solution Architect from World Wide Technology will also join us to share her vast expertise in security strategies.
