The Minnesota Alliance on Crime invites you to a free webinar:
Practical Solutions to Protect Your Agency from Cybercrime
Tuesday, August 20 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Is your agency prepared for a cybersecurity event? Would you know what to do?
Cyber threats are rising in both frequency and sophistication, yet most agencies are ill-equipped to meet this 21st century challenge. Information theft, loss, or attack is now the prevalent type of crime against organizations, overpowering physical theft, which up until 2017, was the most common type of fraud against corporations for a decade.
In addition, a recent report from the Ponemon Institute in 2018 estimates an average cost of $148 per lost record, and the average total cost for a data breach at $3.86 million.
Despite the significant financial risks, organizations still have not taken the time to invest and protect themselves.
The National Cybersecurity Society, will present a 1-hour webinar geared toward helping agencies learn how to implement cost effective solutions to protect them from cybercrime.
Sign up and take the first steps in protecting your agency from cybercrime.
Your data – and your reputation – are on the line. Protect yourself.
