Cyber Matters!

Join us on September 27th

You know that cybercrime is dangerous – it threatens your business and puts your customers at-risk. These criminals mass produce attacks that reach even the smallest companies, freezing operations and taking your attention away from running your business.

We know you’ve been bombarded by information. People sharing extreme examples of companies losing everything, customers' private information disappearing, and victims unable to recover.

There are also service providers reaching out to help. Usually, the solutions seem either very complicated, too expensive, or both. The vendors seem more interested in selling you expensive solutions that are too hard to implement, rather than helping you.

All of this makes cybersecurity seem like an issue that big companies can handle with ease, but smaller organizations don’t have a prayer!

That’s about to change!

On September 27th, you can engage with some of the best cybersecurity resources in Wisconsin. These people understand smaller companies and in just a few hours with us, you will:

  • Understand the true threat
  • Come away with several immediate, practical actions that will make your operations more secure
  • Access professional resources to develop a practical plan
