 FREE Workshop Helps Smaller Businesses Identify and Address

Information Security Issues in Practical and Affordable Manner


Importance of Computer Security

Businesses which utilize computers for email and other online activities as well as invoices, payroll, employee data, client records, or proprietary information are potentially vulnerable to the threat of computer crime and innocent computing errors that may create tremendous inconvenience, produce substantial financial loss, or even end the life of the business.  Because this threat is real, significant, and growing, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting workshops that help business owners assess the security of their information and information systems in order to understand what safeguards are needed, weigh their potential for loss, and make sound investments in effective computer security solutions.

Target Audience

This workshop is for the owners and key team members of small and mid-sized businesses.  You do not have to be an information technology or computer professional in order to understand the presentation.  You will gain an understanding about the security vulnerabilities of your business and receive information that allows you to determine what preventative and corrective measures are necessary.

What Participants Will Learn

  • Understand basic information security for internet, email, desktop, and personnel
  • Identify information that needs to be protected and prioritize the need for protection
  • Assess security weakness, threats, vulnerabilities, and risks of information systems
  • Determine how much time and money is justified for information security
  • Create procedures to implement security policies that are established
  • Recognize what can be done in-house and what to expect from IT professionals
  • Receive information about security technologies and recommended actions
