Lunch & Learn – Cyber Threats Unveiled: Essential Insights for Consultants

April 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Did you know that nearly half (41%) of US small businesses reported being the victim of a cyber-attack in the past year? If you are a solopreneur or run a small consulting practice, you may not have the luxury of a dedicated IT team. However, a lack of cybersecurity knowledge can make your consulting practice a target for cyber criminals. Bad actors use a variety of tools and strategies to gain entry and wreak havoc on your programs and systems. As such, it is crucial for you to be aware of potential threats and the ways to combat them, as well as preventative measures to stop cyber criminals in their tracks. 

If you want to learn more about protecting your consulting practice, grab lunch and join us as we explore the latest research on cyber threats, basic cyber hygiene, and what it may cost if you fail to protect your consulting practice against cyber-attacks.
