Cybersecurity Awareness: It’s Not Just for IT Professionals

GlasbergenCartoon_12010

Many small businesses think of their IT professionals as their cybersecurity superheroes, their ever-vigilant line of defense.  True though this may be, talk to any IT professional  and he or she will tell you that cybersecurity is not just an issue for IT guys/gals. It is an organizational issue. Business ownership/leadership/management needs to be educated about risks and risk mitigation and involved discussions about cybersecurity in order to plan strategically and lead from a position of knowledge and preparedness.

The Kansas SBDC Cybersecurity Forum – coming up on April 25th in Manhattan – is designed to help our extended small business community understand cybersecurity and related issues in order to mitigate the risks and stay strong in today’s ever-changing world.  If you are someone who reasons, “I’m not an IT person so I don’t need to know about cybersecurity,” this event should change your way of thinking. We hope to see you there!
