Networks Northwest Cyber Security Summit - Traverse City
8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Small businesses are not immune to cyber and Malware attacks. In fact, they are just as much at risk as large corporations and government organizations, if not more so. Certain types of cyber attacks are evolving at a pace that outstrips the development of many defensive measures, and small business owners need to be aware of how to protect their business and employees from becoming easy cyber targets. Networks Northwest’s Cyber Security Summit will address areas of concern and action for small business owners.
The Summit will be held at the Northwestern Michigan College University Center, 2200 Dendrinos Dr., Traverse City.
There is no charge but registration is required.
