The Small Business Webinar Series: Two Action Items to Improve Your Cybersecurity

October 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am


We’ve all seen them. Scams, malicious emails, and threatening phone calls have increased at exponential rates since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic. By some reports, cybercrime is up 600% since March 2020. Changes in work environments, consumer behaviors, and supply chains have also migrated even more of our business lives to virtual platforms. So how should a business prepare to mitigate the risks of cybercrime?

Travis Clark, Senior Service Support Technician with Helena-based Anderson ZurMuehlen Technology Services, will help entrepreneurs understand why starting with a cybersecurity risk assessment is the best place to start. Mr. Clark will also help entrepreneurs understand why completing a cyber assessment may help lower your insurance bill and how the assessment can help your marketing strategy.

By utilizing the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) cybersecurity framework, business owners, entrepreneurs, managers, leaders, and advisors in every industry can better understand how a cyber assessment can be used and why communicating that plan to customers and partners are smart business decisions.

This training is being offered to highlight October as cybersecurity month.

This is a 30-minute webinar from 11-11:30am Mountain Time.

Presenter: Ravis Clark, Senior Service Support Technician with Helena-based Anderson ZurMuehlen Technology Services
