Cybercrime in the Workplace

September 29th – Don’t Miss This Program

It Could be One of the Most Valuable Seminars You Attend

According to the FBI, the impact of cybercrime is staggering. Billions of dollars are lost each year repairing systems attacked through cybercrime. Attacks have disrupted and disabled the operations of businesses, hospitals, banks, 9-1-1 services, school districts, and government and law enforcement agencies.

A particularly disturbing aspect of cybercrime has to do with ransomware, an insidious type of malware that encrypts or locks valuable digital files. After malware is installed, demands that an individual or entity pay a ransom to release the malware may follow. The inability to access important data, loss of sensitive or propriety information, disruption of regular operations, enormous financial losses incurred to restore systems and files, and the potential harm to an organization’s reputation can be catastrophic. Ransomware attacks are not only proliferating, but are also becoming extremely sophisticated.

Cybercrimes involving identity theft and online predators continue to rise worldwide. The number of individuals who have been impacted is truly alarming.

We encourage you to attend our special cybersafety workshop on September 29th and learn how you can protect your business and personal information from cyber-attack.

Attackers and their motives are extremely diverse. Some attackers are computer geeks, some are businesses attempting to garner a particular market by hacking competitor websites, some are criminal rings attempting to steal the personal information of individuals, and some are terrorists trying to obtain vital information of our nation.

The FBI has divided computer intrusion cases into three categories: counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and criminal. These cases are of paramount importance to the FBI. As a result, new technologies have been developed and new investigative partnerships have been formed for the purpose of preventing attacks and finding perpetrators of cybercrime.

This could be one of the most important and valuable programs you attend all year!
