Cyber criminals are using complex identity fraud schemes, and leaving record numbers of victims in their wake. In 2017 alone, 16.7 million people fell victim to these attacks. As businesses increasingly depend on electronic data and computer networks to run their daily operations, growing pools of personal and financial information are being transferred and stored online. This can leave people exposed when a breach in data security happens. Learn how to protect yourself from identity theft and cyber crimes. Plus, find out what to do in the event that you are one of the millions of people who fall victim to these crimes.
This evening includes a 30-minute happy hour and a 60-minute presentation.
