Cybersecurity in the Food & Beverage Industry

Thursday, November 9, 2023 | 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM

If you’re not worried about your business being the victim of a cybersecurity attack, you should be. A cybersecurity attack happens every 44 seconds, and small businesses have the largest target on their backs. Employees can be scammed, funds can be lost, and recipes can be changed before you even realize what’s happening. Hear from experts Noel Due, FBI Special Agent, and Linda Emery, an experienced data privacy, security, and technology lawyer at Michael Best at this free members-only event. Hear horror stories, learn what to watch for, and jumpstart your plan to stay proactive and keep your business safe. After the presentation, enjoy networking with your industry peers, appetizers, and drinks.
