NOTE: The Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce's Board of Directors has adopted a COVID-19 vaccine requirement to attend any in-person Chamber meetings or events. To read the full policy, click here.
Cybercriminals aren?t only going after big corporations. For every Equifax or Colonial Pipeline you read about in the news, there are thousands of small businesses that have had their sensitive company or customer information compromised.
Cybercrime continues to plague every one of us, yet most small businesses have no digital security strategy at all. With almost every piece of our lives available on the internet, protecting it MUST be a top priority!
Fight against the latest known threats and vulnerabilities by learning the top 5 simple, no-cost actions you can do right now to protect your digital assets, users, customers and business.
All attendees will receive a FREE USB Cloud Encryption key.--------

DEREK MARCH, Associate with LegalShield/IDShield, specializes in its Cyber-Protection Plan to identify, protect, detect, respond and recover from a cyberattack. Derek comes to the Reston Chamber membership with an 18-year history of work in the cybersecurity field.
Since his B.S. degree in Information Systems and Technology at Penn State, Derek has published risk analyses and papers on disaster data recovery and automated data backup services.
