The North Dakota Small Business Development Centers in cooperation with the Kansas SBDC will host a a cybersecurity event on Oct. 18 at the Leach Center for Student Life on the University of Mary campus.
Brian Dennis, director of the Kansas SBDC Cybersecurity Center for Small Business, will present for business owners and managers, human resource professionals, as well as individuals handling confidential or sensitive information in their businesses including attorneys, accountants and realtors. In addition, the event will provide a platform for students and educators to engage with industry professionals.
“We are working to improve the digital footprint of all small businesses,” said Dennis. “Events like this will allow business owners the opportunities to better understand what steps can be taken to make real changes.”
“It can be easy to think of cybersecurity as a big city, big business issue but that is not the case. It’s something all business owners need to learn about and do what they can to protect themselves,” says David K. Martin, ND SBDC's state director.
The event is free to attend and is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., including a networking lunch.
