The 3 biggest cyber security threats small businesses face and how to protect your company now

We increasingly hear about companies that have been hacked – from large, multinational corporations to solopreneurs. Being hacked results in lost money, time and business – as well as damage to your reputation. Many small business owners believe hackers only go after large companies, but the reality is that smaller companies are becoming increasingly attractive prey. How can we protect ourselves and our businesses from this fate? Presenter Alvion (Al) Legall has been passionate about cyber security for more than two decades and is CEO of ABL Computers, based in Valley Stream, N.Y. Join us at this CEU session for key takeaways about how to arm your business with the latest cyber security tools and techniques.
