PRESENTER:  JOHN AHLBERGWaident Technology Solutions

Security should be a priority for most businesses today. It is no longer something a company can ignore. But where do you start? How much will it cost to be “secure”? What kind of impact will it have on your company and employees?

Waident is recommending that all businesses be more security aware. The highest percentage of security breaches happen from employees and not just the tech. To help with this, we are recommending our clients hold a lunch and learn, in their office, with the topic of security. Not only for their own employees, but also to invite their clients (this is a great way to connect with your own clients and differentiate yourselves).

The only cost to you will be a little of your time and providing lunch (or breakfast or even an afternoon snack – whatever works best for you). You will need to pick the date/time, invite your employees and clients, buy lunch for the group, and schedule your conference room. Waident, at no cost to you, will provide the agenda and will have someone onsite to discuss security topics with best practices. Overall, it will be a very interactive meeting with plenty of questions and answers. The goal here is to identify what you do not know and walk away with things you can do right now to be more secure.

Topics –

  • Top 3 things you can do right now to increase your security tenfold with no IT required
