ABC VA Lunch & Learn on Cybersecurity: What All Businesses Need to Do Now


Mr. Darek Dabbs and Mr. Sam Morthland, from Sera-Brynn, a top-tier Cyber Security firm located in Chesapeake, will present a two-part Lunch and Learn to talk about the need for all businesses to think about cyber security; actions to take to secure your systems. The session will cover how the Federal Government, led by the DoD, is requiring compliance to specific cybersecurity standards, how well companies are doing from their perspective, and what actions can be taken to shore up your systems to show compliance.

Every business needs to understand their customers trust them to protect their personal and corporate information. While a business would never knowingly put their customers at risk, lax or lack of appropriate computer security practices do just that and expose customers to threats and possible severe financial loss. Join us to find out how to prevent your company from suffering from a cyber breach.
