SBDC Webinar to Discuss Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

November 17, 2017

Small businesses have an opportunity to learn how to protect their data, systems and intellectual property from cyber threats; respond to events; and recover quickly if these events occur. 

A Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) webinar, titled “Cybersecurity for the Small Innovative Business,” is scheduled Tuesday, Nov. 28, from 2-3 p.m. Cybersecurity is especially important for technology companies that rely on intellectual property for business value. 

The SBDC is a partnership among the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Business Council and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC focuses on educating small-business owners and potential owners on how to successfully start and operate small businesses. The SBDC’s main office is located at UW.

Jim Drever, SBDC regional director, will present the program. Drever has CISO specialist certification in cybersecurity and also has certificates in vulnerability assessment, ethical hacking, and cybersecurity risk assessment and management. Previously, he was marketing director and project manager for a national software company, and he ran his own consulting business. 

“Cybersecurity is a concern for all businesses these days, so this should be a good program,” says Cindy Beth Unger, business adviser for the SBDC.

There is no fee for this webinar, but attendees must register at to obtain the link to the program.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least two weeks in advance. Language assistance services for clients with limited English proficiency will be provided. For more information, call Kelly Haigler-Cornish at (307) 766-2904.
