For all businesses – from the very small to very large!
Wednesday, May 10, 2017, 8:15 a.m.
Although you hear increasingly about cyber-attacks and fraud in the news and on social media, many or most of us don’t believe it can happen to us or our business. We don’t want to think about the negative effect it could have on our good name, our cash flow, or our day-to-day business operations. We also may not want to stop and think that even if it “can’t” happen to us, it could happen to someone else in our lives, be it our business supply chain or a family member and that by it happening to them, it could also affect us….
