UW and Wyoming SBDC Network to Host Email Scam Webinar March 14

One click of a scam email link can completely disrupt your business. Small-business owners can get the most up-to-date information on how to protect themselves and their businesses from email scammers Thursday, March 14.

Paul Johnson and Jim Drever will lead a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network webinar titled “Email Scam Superpowers” from noon-12:30 p.m. To register, go here. Registration is free.

The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

In the webinar, attendees will learn how to spot scams to avoid online chaos. The scammers keep getting better, but there are always fairly clear signs that betray their bad intentions.
