Small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) with between 25-200 employees are the engine of the economy. These 23 million businesses, which typically don’t have a designated CIO or on-staff IT team, are being relied on to keep their company’s mission-critical systems running 24/7—even as they are increasingly in the crosshairs of cyber criminals who consider them ‘soft targets’.
Mr. Motta’s presentation will outline a series of business scenarios and suggest criteria for determining the most cost-effective course of action to minimize exposure to cyber attacks, sophisticated malware, computer viruses, hacked websites, and even well-intentioned, but careless employees.
The Smaller Business Association of New England, Inc. (SBANE), founded in 1938, is a private not-for-profit association of approximately 600 member companies located throughout the six-state region. SBANE was established to provide a legislative voice for small business at the state and federal levels and to make practical information available to help business owners grow their companies. SBANE runs diverse, educational programs each year and has active chapters in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The membership is characterized by a high degree of participation, reflected in a large and dynamic committee structure, addressing a range of topics from international trade to human resources.
