Event Description

Data Security Threats

You're at Greater Risk than You Think


  • 70% of 2012 Data Breaches Were Suffered by Companies with 100 or Fewer Employees
  • Small Businesses are 13 Times More Likely to be Targeted than Companies with 100-1000 Employees 
  • 87% of Small Businesses Suffered Some Kind of Cyberattack Last Year


You've heard about the Target and Apple data security breaches, but probably dismissed the notion that the same could happen to you. Well it’s not just the big guys that have to worry about cybercriminals or untrustworthy employees. Small businesses are prime targets for attacks, and when they do occur, the likelihood of your business surviving is dismal. It's time to ask yourself: Who has access to company information? What have I done to prevent cyber attacks? How am I protecting my customer and company data? How will my business fair if my data is compromised?

Learn how to protect your business against paralyzing data security breaches from Hawaii's information technology experts.

In this seminar we'll examine:

  • Who poses a greater threat: cybercriminals or your own employees
  • Internal and external threats you may have never considered
  • Everyday information that doesn't receive the security attention it deserves
  • The true cost of security breaches and how they can cripple your company
  • Data security policies that will keep your company safe
