Topic:  Cybersecurity for CPA's and Non-Profits -- Don't be a Statistic, Protect Yourself

Hackers are constantly improving their tactics to trick unsuspecting employees to open the door to sensitive data; let’s work together to slam the door on cyber criminals.
Professional service organizations realize that cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. With human error causing 95% of data breaches, working together to create a layered security strategy can actively reduce risk to your business (and to your clients).

  • How to improve your cybersecurity on an ongoing basis

  • 15 Point Checklist – Spot light on Data Backup and Continuity

  • Q & A and real-life examples


Who will Benefit?
The session will benefit anyone involved in an organization’s operations, finance, IT, and/or HR. Operational and technically minded staff may find direct application, while top level strategists will find helpful for larger scale planning, budgeting, and goal determination.

We suggest using Peyton Street to get to Cameron (Cameron is a one way street, so you can’t drive through the arch and make a right on Cameron, only a left).  Come up Cameron and park at the Durant Center and then walk up to NHPCO through the back side of the arch/driveway. 
There are free public parking spaces between the Durant Center and the public swimming pool and also behind Jefferson Houston Elementary School at 1501 Cameron Street.
