Cybersecurity Colloquium May 18 in Sartell

I thought this might be of interest to some – either to attend or to try to replicate in your area…

The House Small Business Committee recently held a hearing on the devastating effects cybersecurity incidents have on small businesses.  Some statistics that were reported include:

  • 60% of small companies close within six months of a cyberattack
  • 71% of cyberattacks occurred in companies with fewer than 100 employees in 2012
  • $32,000 was the average cost of a cyberattack in 2014

On May 18 you will have the opportunity to hear from experts on ways to protect yourself and your customers from cyberattacks at the Cybersecurity Colloquium in Sartell, MN.
