Better Business Bureau Presents: When Cyber Security Fails: How to Ensure Your Small Business Systems are Recoverable
About the presentation
Does your small business have securities in place to protect all of your business and customer data, and information? Is it secure enough? Experts are now saying that due to cyber threats, more severe weather patterns, higher levels of social unrest, and many other factors, organizations MUST be prepared to recover all of their IT assets every 10 years! What?s more concerning is that the Small Business Administration and FEMA state that only 2 out of 10 businesses faced with disaster, will be in business 2 years after a recovery event.
This presentation will walk through real-world disaster recoveries, focusing on recoveries that were cyber-attack induced, discuss how the attacks were carried out, the challenges faced during the recoveries, and provide executable advice on how you can take immediate action to improve your business?s recoverability.
