Cookeville – In the digital environment in which we live, data is everything. The private information stored in the cloud or on devices and websites is more vulnerable to breach now than ever before. Breach and data theft, especially in business, is costly and affects millions of consumers, small businesses and big corporations. Devices should be encrypted appropriately and the fight to keep the bad guys at bay.
This Thursday at 11 a.m., the Cookeville – Putnam County Chamber of Commerce will host a Signature Luncheon at Leslie Town Centre on cybersecurity training. The luncheon hopes to spread the word on the dangers that are only a click away and teach business owners, and consumers alike, what to look for and how to fight against breaches to personal information.
The special guest speaker will be from the Nashville FBI. In honor of national cyber security month, they will speak on emerging cybersecurity trends and online safety. SA Billings will provide an overview and explanation of trends in the cyber security world with a presentation describing cyber attackers and their motivation.
Topics discussed will include ransomware, phishing and business email compromises. The event is sponsored by Ascend Federal Credit Union.
