Overview

Small businesses are very attractive targets for cyber-thieves and the number of small business hacking incidents is increasing.  Small businesses (and particularly small business owners’ computers) are often easier targets since they aren’t secured the way corporate computers are, and small business users are often less savvy when it comes to IT security.  The data at risk for small business owners include details on banking and investment accounts, tax forms, and employee social security numbers and personal info. If your business accepts credit cards, you are also subject to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI compliance is not just a matter of technology compliance, but also policies and procedures that you and your employees must follow—attend this session to learn what they are.

At this session, we’ll address 10 common ways in which human error can expose your data to potential theft and set your business up for disaster.  The fact patterns you’ll hear about are common and the mistakes unintentional.  They can and do happen at businesses of every size.  And they’re preventable– once the risks are known and understood by everyone.
