Cyber Security for Small Businesses

April 2, 9:00 – 11:30 AM
Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia

The laws and technology surrounding privacy and security are always changing. Our experts will help you understand your obligations.

Fee: $25




Privacy and security of information is a concern for every business owner. Employers need to protect their employee’s data; businesses need to protect their client’s data; and contractors need to prepare to be compliant with corporate privacy and information security guidelines.

The regulations around cybersecurity change almost as often as the technical solutions that are available to keep your data safe. If you’re interested in contracting with major corporations and government agencies, you’re probably already making every effort to put your best foot forward as a supplier and ensure your business is ready to comply with industry standard and best practices in information security. This is a great opportunity to make sure your efforts are on track.

Our workshop leverages the technical and legal expertise of three different companies with extensive experience in this space for an overall discussion hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. You’ll walk away from the morning with tangible action items to take back to your company.
