Cybersecurity for SMBs: Protecting Your Business

Are you a small or mid-sized business? This is for you!

Ninety-five percent of hacks into your organization’s network will happen for two reasons: staff error and outdated software. Ransomware attacks are becoming more and more common for small- and medium-sized businesses, and it can cost more than $1 million to recover from just one incident.

Join the Maryland Chamber, University of Maryland University College (UMUC) and the Department of Commerce to learn critical ways you can protect your business from cyber attacks.

Hear from experts in an informal session that will give you knowledge you need to stay safe.

Join us in person for network-building and Q&A opportunities, or join us via audio webinar!
