CYBER AWARE: PHISHING
The RGC-SBDC, in conjunction with the UTSA SBDC CGC continues to examine cybersecurity topics that impact small businesses with our Cyber Aware series. For this web based presentation we will be discussing phishing. Phishing attacks continue to be one of the biggest threats facing businesses today. Threat actors can use phishing to gain access to, modify, or even hold your data for ransom. Technology has advanced with email security software, however, education and awareness training is still the best defense to combat a phishing attack. Join us as we discuss the different methods of phishing, detecting a phishing attack, and recovery from a phishing attack.

A RETURN TO NORMAL: CYBERSECURITY RAMIFICATIONS
Join RGC-SBDC, in conjunction with the UTSA SBDC CGC as we discuss some of the ramifications on cybersecurity as it relates to returning to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic. Just as there were additional threats and vulnerabilities associated with transitioning to a remote or work from home environment, there will be new considerations as we transition back to a normal business environment. Some of the issues we’ll discuss include: updating your cybersecurity policy and plans, lessons learned, data protection and transfers, sterilization of returning equipment, and reinforcing good cyber hygiene practices with your workforce. At the conclusion of the presentation, we’ll answer as many questions as we can.
