The threat is real. In our fast-paced world, cyber-technology designed for our good is often being used for bad. Domestic and international terrorists - often under the pretentious guise of “activism” - are now putting businesses, municipalities, medical facilities and law enforcement agencies in the crosshairs. Attacks by bad actors place these entities at greater risks than ever.
Come join the Wickenburg Chamber of Commerce and Radixx Consulting as we walk through these questions and ways to achieve improved system and network hygiene, and a healthy security posture at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Wickenburg Chamber Boardroom. For reservations, call (928) 684-5479.
