Small businesses are under cyber and data-breach attacks more than ever given the current climate. Cyber attacks happen every day, and for a small business they can be very costly and cripple business operations. Having your systems and information compromised is not only a direct threat to your confidential data, it can also ruin your relationships with customers and cause legal vulnerability. It is imperative to learn how to boost your cyber defense systems. This series was developed to help small businesses be cyber safe.
This webinar takes a deep look at how to protect your business’ media and physical assets. After discussing what cybersecurity is and why it needs to be at the forefront of business owners’ minds, the Media Protection practice discusses how to sanitize or destroy information system media containing Federal Contract Information before disposal or release for reuse. This includes safe ways you can destroy CDs/DVDs and laptop and desktop hard drives. Webinar attendees also will learn how to limit physical access to systems and equipment and hear why it’s important to escort visitors and monitor visitor activity, maintain audit logs, and properly manage physical access devices like locks, keys, or access codes during the Physical Protection practice.
This webinar includes two short videos and a panel discussion.
- Tim Taylor, SBDC Research Supervisor and retired property crimes investigator will answer questions regarding Physical Protection and Media Protection.
- Peter Marchel, Marchel and Associates Risk Consultants will discuss protection from liability.
- Rob Ruder, Adjunct MIS Professor, Gonzaga University and IT Consultant.
- Keith Davis, SBDC Associate Business Advisor
