On November 14, the Central Library will host a program for small business owners titled Cyber-Security Made Simple. The program is sponsored by the local chapter of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives), a nonprofit organization committed to providing mentoring to small business owners and entrepreneurs. The program presenters will be computer specialists from Sawyer Solutions, a Pelham-based information technology company.
Frequently, small business owners think that, due to the size of their operations, they will not fall victim to the same kind of data hackers and online intruders that threaten big corporations. A recent survey conducted by Nationwide Insurance Co., however, indicated that nearly 65% of small businesses in the United States have experienced a computer information security breach. Many small business owners continue to operate under the assumption that they are not a cyber-target and, therefore, do not take the necessary steps to properly secure their IT systems. Unfortunately, the consequences of this oversight can be devastating.
