New Era of Cyber Risk: From Legal Headaches to Business Killers

More than ever before, customers and employees trust companies will protect their personal information. Business partners seek assurance that doing business with you won’t put their networks and information systems at risk.

Add cyber criminals and privacy laws to the mix, and even smaller businesses are no longer immune from the legal and business impacts of cyber attacks — lawsuits, fines from noncompliance, stolen bank funds and more.

In fact, 50 percent of all targeted cyber attacks in 2012 were aimed at businesses with fewer than 2,500 employees. More significantly, businesses with fewer than 250 employees were the target of 31 percent of all cyber attacks. [Source: Symantec, Internet Security Threat Report 2013, Volume 18 (April 2013) p. 4]

CalChamber has teamed up with one of Safeway’s cyber security experts, Neal K. McCarthy, for this fact-packed 90 minutes. Among other topics, he’ll explain why customers, employees and the government all expect businesses to safeguard confidential data. Criminals are targeting small and medium-sized companies and putting some of them out of business.
