MNC Network Event: Information Security

May 21 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Join us for the MNC Network Event on Information Security as we learn the importance of cybersecurity for small and mid-sized businesses. Our speakers Elizabeth Cole-Walker and Damon Armour are Information Security Specialists in the Security & Compliance department at North Carolina State University. They will share how cyber-attacks have evolved, discuss the current threat landscape and provide steps that every business needs to take to begin protecting itself.

 

Small and mid-sized businesses are under cyber-attack. 43% of cyber-attacks are against small businesses and 60% of small businesses go out of business within 6 months of a cyber-attack (Small Business Trends). Cybersecurity is now a critical topic for all small businesses.  We invite you to join this networking event and learn from our experts and each other.
