How to Protect Your Business
Against Cyber Crime


Tuesday, Oct. 17 @ Giovanni’s  |  11:30AM – 1:00PM

Think your business is too small to worry about hackers?

Think again. Several years ago, Forbes magazine reported that over half of all cyber attacks are aimed at small businesses. That’s a scary number, and it’s likely grown in the years since! But there are ways to protect your business. At this complimentary luncheon, you’ll hear sound strategies from Tim Ancona, CEO of Ticomix, as well as Don Cuppini of The Cuppini Group, who will discuss how insurance companies can play a role in saving a small business from bankruptcy in the event of a costly attack.


  • What is the #1 security threat to your business that anti-virus, firewalls and other security protocols are defenseless against?
  • What are the risks of mobile and cloud computing and what critical protections you should have in place to avoid security breaches, expensive litigation, employment lawsuits, and confidential company information getting leaked to competitors, hackers and cyber criminals?
  • What is the nasty truth about bank fraud that most businesses don’t know but that could wipe out your bank account?
  • How do firewalls and anti-virus software give you a false sense of security?
  • Is there anything your insurance company can do to reduce your liability in the event of a data breach?
