GRAND PRIZE CASH GIVEAWAY!
Most building material dealers, distributors and builders don’t think that Cyber Crimes can affect their businesses. They think they’re “too small” to be noticed but the statistics tell a different story. At the end of 2011, 18% of all cyber attacks were aimed at small businesses (under 500 employees). By 2014 that number had risen to over 36% and today it’s nearing 45%. AND, 60% of all small businesses that have a cyber attack will close within six months! That’s a staggering statistic.
On Wednesday, February 3rd, at the Building Products Show, BMSA is holding a seminar that will give you some much needed information. Our hope is to raise your awareness, tell you a little about the laws surrounding these spiraling crimes, give you information on where you can obtain help quickly, and talk about some real life issues on what cyber crime victims go through years after an attack (both personally and professionally).
Your speaker for this special program is Director Stacia Hylton. Ms. Hylton was appointed Director of the U.S. Marshals Service in 2010 by President Obama. She began her 32-year law enforcement career as a Deputy U.S. Marshal. During her tenure with the U.S. Marshals Service, she held several positions in diverse mission areas, including 10 years as a member of the USMS Special Operations Group.
BMSA encourages you to invite your builders to attend this program with you. They also need this information!
Date: Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016
