-- (SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Downtown Business Association, in conjunction with Seimitsu, Corp., is devoting its July Luncheon Meeting to the issue of cybersecurity and ransomware. Rushe Hudzinski, on the faculty of Savannah Technical College, will be the featured speaker.
"Cybersecurity is the big issue when it comes to technology,"
noted Sam Cook, president and CEO of Seimitsu Corp., the Savannah-based business specializing in IT and high-speed broadband fiber services. "The costs and overall disruptions of cyber attacks are astounding."
Citing the June 17 malware incursion into a large, Savannah-area hospital as a recent example of how cybersecurity significantly impacts local businesses, Cook cautioned that the drain on a company's resources following a cyber attack can be devastating. According to a 2020 study by IBM, it can take nine months to identify and resolve a breach.
Hudzinski, the featured speaker for the Downtown Business Association's monthly luncheon, plans to focus on three topics:
- How to reduce business risk to cyber attacks
- The dos and don'ts when developing a business training and awareness program
- Developing a winning business strategy for cybersecurity
The luncheon will take place at the Charles Morris Center, 10 East Broad Street, on Wednesday, July 14 at 11:30 a.m. and is open to the public. The cost of the luncheon is $25 for members and $35 for non-members. To RSVP, https://sadba.memberclicks.net/index.php?option=com_mcfor...
