EDC offers free workshop on Cybersecurity for Business

Cyber­se­cu­ri­ty is not just for large busi­ness­es: Small and mid-sized busi­ness­es are tar­get­ed just as fre­quent­ly by cyber-crooks. Join the San Juan Coun­ty Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil for a FREE work­shop on the top­ic of Cyber­se­cu­ri­ty for Busi­ness, on Feb­ru­ary 8th from 9:15–10:15 a.m. on Orcas Island, spon­sored by Island Mar­ket. Advance reg­is­tra­tion is required.

Not­ed man­age­ment con­sul­tant and author Mike Sanders will pro­vide impor­tant tips to work more secure­ly on the Inter­net and to pro­tect your company’s valu­able infor­ma­tion and finan­cial assets against online fraud and oth­er cyber­crimes. Top­ics will include cre­at­ing bet­ter pass­words, pro­tec­tion of data includ­ing cus­tomer data, iden­ti­fy­ing phish­ing, spot­ting cyber crim­i­nals online, basic cyber-pro­tec­tion and dis­cus­sion of the evolve­ment and types of cyber­crimes. The hour includes a fun quiz and an open dis­cus­sion at the end.

The San Juan Coun­ty Eco­nom­ic Devel­op­ment Coun­cil (EDC) strives to strength­en and diver­si­fy the econ­o­my of San Juan Coun­ty. We believe a strong econ­o­my builds a strong com­mu­ni­ty. The EDC works to build an envi­ron­ment that helps busi­ness own­ers cre­ate jobs. We serve busi­ness: link­ing orga­ni­za­tions and resources, pro­vid­ing valu­able infor­ma­tion, ren­der­ing assis­tance and advo­cat­ing for an improved island busi­ness environment.
