Eggs N Issues: Cyber Security with Brent Panell:
This event is sponsored by: Pen Air Federal Credit Union
Businesses are under attack every day from the dark world of espionage, uncharitable acts, and cyber crime. Criminals steal data, compromise your customers, and put your reputation at risk. Your data is valuable to you, your clients, and to the highest bidder on the Dark Web. In the current environment, knowing you are protected before a cyber event occurs is vital. By developing a better understanding of cyber security, you will be able to assess if your current IT company is adequately protecting your data, or if you are vulnerable.
