    Name: Fairfield County Cybersecurity Webinar
    Date: April 29, 2021
    Time: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
    Event Description:

    An Unprecedented Surge in Cybercrime has been Overshadowed by COVID-19
    The world has been gripped by the pandemic for the last year and the far-reaching impact of the COVID-19 virus has disrupted all aspects of life. Another epidemic has surged and that is cybercrime.  A recent report by Homeland Security Today indicated cybercrime has increased by an astonishing 63% during the pandemic as criminals take advantage of the uncertainty and quickly implemented security systems due to the stay-at-home orders.
    Manufacturers have been especially hit hard. Another report details an increase in cybercrime of 140% against manufacturers with ransomware attacks leading the way. Ransomware has been especially crippling to companies who can ill afford to be shut down let alone see all operations cease while the determination is made to pay the ransom or as companies weigh the impact of lost data and time.
    Many businesses believe they are too small for a cybercriminal to care about, but that is naïve thinking.  Small companies are just as susceptible as large companies and they often lack some of the sophisticated deterrents and security measures. 
    To aid Fairfield County businesses in developing their cybersecurity strategy, The Fairfield 33 Alliance and its Chamber partners, and the MEP at Columbus State will host a free webinar on April 29th at 9 a.m. to focus on using Cybersecurity Analysis to Protect Your Business Against Increasing Cybercrime. MEP partner Maple Woods Enterprises will serve as the subject matter expert to guide the discussion and provide insight to the companies.
