Last year over 200 attendees learned surprising business and cybersecurity tips to protect themselves, family, friends, and customers. If you think Oklahoma businesses are not targets for cybercrime then think again!
- One in five small businesses falls victim to cybercrime each year and that number is GROWING. (National Cyber Security Alliance)
- Small businesses are low-hanging fruit because they don’t believe they are a target, and therefore have very loose or no security systems and protocols in place.
- Half of all cyber-attacks are aimed at SMBs. (Forbes, “5 Ways Small Businesses Can Protect Against Cybercrime”)
Cybersecurity Expert Special Guest Speaker
Kevin Fream, Matrixforce CEO and best-selling author of Easy Prey and Streamlining Technology will be the special guest speaker with business tips presented at Microsoft, Nasdaq, and Harvard.
The Chairman of the US Homeland Security Committee, Michael McCaul, recently stated, “I’m going to be honest. We’re in the fight of our digital lives, and we are not winning.” But, as Mr. Fream will explain, your business doesn’t need to be one of the losers. His presentations will cover the 7 most critical IT security protections every business must have in place now to protect themselves from cybercrime, data breaches and hacker attacks
It’s a message Fream has been delivering across the United States most of this year. He’s appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox News stations across the nation to help viewers avoid becoming victims of the ransomware and identity theft epidemic. He recently delivered an address to the Harvard Club of Boston where he received the Cyberist of the Year Award.
Jeff Spann, Senior Information Security Consultant at SBS Cybersecurity and Howard Frankenfield, Chief Information Officer for FNB will also join Kevin Fream in a question and answer panel for attendees. Registered guests will also be provided lunch and may attend the book signing for both best-selling books afterwards.
SBS CyberSecurity (SBS), formerly Secure Banking Solutions, began in 2004 to assist financial institutions in creating tailored Information Security Programs and meeting regulatory requirements. Over the years, SBS has worked closely with Trade Associations, as well as Federal and State Regulators, to help implement valuable programs that promote risk management and the oversight of cybersecurity threats and incidents.
