Course Description

Did You Know?

Cyber-crime costs the US Economy close to $100 billion per year, and the Global Economy over $500 billion per year. The average bill to "fix" a fraudulent occurrence is as much as $30,000, which most small businesses do not have budgeted. When data is compromised, the expenses and loss of customer trust often lead to small businesses going out of business. Personal safety is also compromised via cyber-crime, as over three-fourths of sexual predators are active on the internet each day. As you hear from Cyber Security Center professionals, learn what ignoring cyber security may cost you.
