Winter Haven, FL (PRWEB) August 02, 2013
Cyber attacks may drain as much as $140 billion and half a million jobs from the U.S. economy each year, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. In recent months, cyber criminals around the world have attacked a variety of companies, targeting sensitive customer information as well as intellectual capital stored on company computers. This type of crime often goes unnoticed, putting businesses and customers at risk.
To address this problem, Protected Trust and the International Association of Privacy Professionals will host a free KnowledgeNet educational event in Winter Haven for local business leaders.
David Stelzl, an expert on digital security, will speak on “Data@Risk: Seven Mindsets Important to the Protection of Your Company’s Information.” The event takes place Aug. 28, 2013, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Protected Trust, 199 Ave B NW, Winter Haven, FL 33881. Food and beverages will be served.
A consultant, speaker, and author specializing in high-tech sales and marketing, Stelzl has first-hand knowledge of the international hacking community, its methods, and its targets. His information can help business leaders protect their customers and their companies.
