Workshop Topic
Combat the Dark Side: A Crash Course in Cyber Security for Small Businesses

Course Overview

We will dive into how you can protect your business so it doesn't end up the same way the Death Star did. We will be covering the following topics:

  • "Aren't you a little short to be a Stormtrooper?" - How to identify phishing emails and attackers when they are hiding as your favorite things.
  • "The thermal exhaust port is only 2 meters wide, no one could hit that" - Keeping your PCs secure from the latest vulnerabilities
  • "If we change the name of the file from 'Death Star Plans' to 'Stardust', no one will be able to steal them" - Keeping your data secure in the event someone does get in
  • "So the Rebels have stolen the Death Star plans, what do we do next?" - The importance of a solid Incident Response, Disaster Recovery, and Business Continuity Plan
