We know crabby employees are a potential cybersecurity risk, but the big picture for keeping data safe is a lot more complex. How do you respond to a cyber hack or ransomware attack? What are the red flags you should be able to recognize when dealing with a new client or vendor? Are you really protected from identity theft? And do you really understand cybersecurity compliance?

These things change all the time, so keeping up with the answers to those questions is always a good thing for a business owner, aspiring or current, to know.

You don’t have to be a student at Wilmington University to attend the educational event “Cybersecurity, Fraud and Compliance: What Your Business Needs to Know” on Friday, March 9 at the New Castle Campus auditorium. The same event takes place Friday, May 11 at the Dover Campus auditorium. The workshop at each location is from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., with breakfast included.

Speakers at both events, which are co-presented by the Delaware Better Business Bureau, Delaware Small Business Development Center and the National Cyber Security Alliance, include:

  • R. Thomas Wagner, Jr., Delaware’s Auditor of Accounts
  • Elayne Starkey, Chief Security Officer for the Delaware Department for Technology and Information
  • U.S. Secret Service agents
  • Other cybersecurity experts

Tickets are $25 for one ticket, or $40 for two. There is no fee for Wilmington University students.
