You're invited to join the Department of Homeland Security for National Cyber Security Awareness Month at Capital Factory!
Small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of the nation’s economy, offering a wide range of services. Much of our nation’s critical infrastructure relies on small and medium-sized businesses, but these businesses might not fully understand the value of their data—or its appeal to a cyber criminal. What’s more, they might not have resources to properly protect the data or critical systems they manage. Small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs face the same cybersecurity challenges and threats as large businesses, but often with limited resources, capacity, and personnel. Cybersecurity for entrepreneurs is especially important as they have the opportunity to integrate sound cyber practices at the onset of their investments and company development.
As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2014, the Department of Homeland Security, Capital Factory, the University of Texas and the Austin Chamber of Commerce are hosting an event to highlight the cyber risks, best practices, and resources most applicable to small and medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurs for protecting data and intellectual property. You are invited to join local leaders from industry and academia, along with representatives from the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, for this important discussion.
