Keeping Business Owners and Staff Safe Online with Attorney and Cybersecurity Expert Michael Gips
Keeping Business Owners and Staff Safe Online with Attorney and Cybersecurity Expert Michael Gips - October 19, 2020 While today there’s a great deal of focus on what cyber-attacks can do to Small Business, there is equally as much business owners can do to protect themselves. Moreover, keeping your business, your personal and your employees’ safe online can also be good for business, too! To discuss good cybersecurity practices for Small Business, W3 Consulting’s Ray Sidney-Smith was joined by attorney and cybersecurity expert Michael Gips. Michael brings 12 years of experience advising Chief Security Officers (CSO) in his role as founder of the CSO Roundtable/CSO Center for Leadership & Development. He helps businesses and organizations manage their online and offline security practices. They discussed how training, especially in our current state of on-again-off-again working remotely, and savvy business practices can alleviate the headaches of feeling vulnerable and insecure. As October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCAM), W3 Consulting has joined as a Champion on behalf of NCAM’s sponsors, National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), to bring timely information to Small Business about how to protect themselves technologically online and offline.
