Last call for this week's Knowledge & Networking Lunch
It's your last chance to join us this Thursday, July 11, to learn from Ventura County District Attorney Investigator Kimo Hildreth, a member of the FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force, at our next Knowledge & Networking Lunch. Businesses large and small are being scammed by sophisticated cyber criminals  – and often forced to close as a result. Learn about the latest cyber attack trends and how to protect your business and customers. 

Summer is a great time to mentor
