Local Organization Plans Cyber Security Class

SALINE, Mich.(Feb. 19, 2013)—Back by popular demand, The Washtenaw County Cyber Citizenship Coalition (WC4) is hosting a class on how to protect your business from cyber-attack. “Cyber Security for Business 101” will be led by local cyber security professionals Joe Eastman, Adjunct Faculty at Eastern Michigan University and Jeff Haller, and Noël Quiton trainer specializing in Information Assurance.

Larry Works, who took the class offered in November, said the class "Exceeded my expectations. Information was presented in a manner anyone can understand. They demonstrated the risks, shared simple yet effective solutions to making my business more secure and clearly answered all of our questions.

A second class will be held on February 19th at the Saline Library, 1555 N. Maple Road Saline, MI 48176. The session starts at 11a.m.
The class will cover topics ranging from demonstrations on how easy it is for any business to become a target of a cyber-attack and what it looks like to get hacked, to providing insight on what happens when hackers get in your system. A question and answer session will follow the discussion. Get information on simple steps you can take to make your computers and data less of a target as well as details about what to do if your business becomes a victim.

Founded in 2009, the mission of WC4 is to raise awareness and provide county residents with the tools and resources to be good cyber citizens. Coalition members include members of local, state and federal agencies who are involved in keeping residents and businesses safe online.

WC4 strives to empower community members through awareness and education to use the Internet and related technology safely and securely.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register.
