Event Details

Cyberattacks cost the world over $1 trillion in 2020, while the average cost of cyberattacks to small businesses in the U.S is $25,612 annually.  

On the technical side, research shows that any internet-hosted system will be probed by cyber attackers within a few hours or sometimes, within minutes. For closed or private networks, the nuances that can make a closed network accessible to an attack are so varied, that companies are often advised to operate as though their internal network has been compromised. I share these not to be a doomsday monger, but to clarify that… if your business relies on computer technology or the internet, the question is not whether you have cybersecurity risk, but how much you risk you have, and how well it’s addressed.

The purpose of this talk is to help you understand what cybersecurity risk is, show why it matters to businesses, and explain how businesses can assess, prioritize, and address cybersecurity risk. We will also cover common cybersecurity mistakes, and how businesses can avoid them.


  • A clear understanding of what cybersecurity risk is and how it affects businesses.
  • How to assess, prioritize, and address risk, for any potential security threat.
  • Each attendee will become aware of common cybersecurity mistakes, and how businesses can avoid them.
