ASBTDC to offer free cybersecurity webinar for small businesses

The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center, based at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, is hosting a free webinar designed to help small businesses manage and mitigate the risks of cyber threats.

The webinar, “Small Business Cybersecurity: A Risk Management Approach,” will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14. Those interested may sign up at this online link.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. According to the Federal Communications Commission, theft of digital information has become the most commonly reported fraud. During the coronavirus pandemic, many small businesses have moved their operations online, so they could be vulnerable to digital thieves or hackers.

During the webinar, participants will learn about common cyber threats and crimes, methods for determining a business’s level of risk, and what you can do to protect your business.

Christopher Wright, co-founder of Sullivan Wright Technologies, a security-first IT service provider based in Little Rock, will lead the webinar. His background in cybersecurity includes securing systems vital to Air Force Space Command, Medicare and Medicaid, Homeland Security, and other government agencies. Wright continued his cybersecurity work with FIS, before going into business for himself.
