Past Program
Jay Brackman - Cybersecurity and You: How to Protect Your Business and Yourself

June 13th, 2022 The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs had the pleasure of hearing our very own Jay Brackman speak to the club about Cybersecurity and how to keep you and your business protected from the latest threats.

What is Cybersecurity? The state of being protected against the criminal or unauthorized use of electronic data, or the measures taken to achieve this. In 2021, Cyber attacks cost $6 trillion, that amount is estimated to go up to $10 trillion by 2025. 

A few of the many techniques and safeguards Jay mentioned included:

  • Layers of Security
  • Next Generation Firewall
  • Make sure you are using MFA
  • Change passwords every 90 days
  • Be aware of latest phishing scams
  • Back up your data
  • Do not use public Wi-Fi for anything but browsing

Thank you for speaking to the Club Jay!
