Watch National Small Business Week Cybersecurity Panel Discussion Live

National Small Business Week Cybersecurity Panel Discussion

The importance of cybersecurity in today’s small business world can’t be overstated. All sorts of small businesses are being targeted. Mom and pop businesses all the way up to multi-unit franchise businesses can sometimes bear the brunt of cyber-attacks. But, why are small businesses targeted?

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

From Small Business Trends:

The reason cyber attackers target small businesses is simple: it’s easier. They’re often less secure, with a smaller security budget, and the mindset that they’re too insignificant to attract attention. Given that most attacks are fully automated, these attackers can make it through a small business’s defenses much faster than they can a larger corporation, allowing them to target more companies in a shorter period of time.”

That’s why it’s important for small business owners and managers to take advantage of cybersecurity educational events whenever possible. Like the one coming up this week as part of National Small Business Week.


A Cybersecurity Panel Discussion

From 11:00 am-Noon, ET, current small business/franchise owners, IT department managers-anyone who needs to be aware of the latest cybersecurity threats, can watch the panel discussion live.

Tip: Future franchise business owners should watch the discussion, too. It’s a great way for you to stay current on the state of cybersecurity. Plus, you’ll be able to ask intelligent cybersecurity-related questions if and when you meet the technology team at franchise headquarters.

Small businesses are becoming a larger target for criminals seeking to access sensitive data because attackers are well aware that small businesses have limited resources or personnel dedicated to information system security. In an effort to help keep your small business secure, tune in live as SBA Deputy Administrator Doug Kramer along with experts from Microsoft, ADP, and ESET discuss cybersecurity tips and trends.”

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
