July 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
With an uptick in cyber security related crimes and increasingly sophisticated tools to breach a rapidly growing technology landscape, it’s essential business owners are aware of the latest trends and strategies to defend themselves against a list of evolving threats. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks occur each year alongside the development of 200,000 new malware variants.
