Payroll and human resources provider ADP has announced it will co-host the second annual Small Business Summit on Security, Privacy, and Trust. The event is held in partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), Microsoft, ESET, the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the William Paterson University Small Business Development Center, and the Passaic County, New Jersey Department of Economic Development.
The Summit will be on Wednesday, October 30 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST, at William Paterson University, 1600 Valley Road, Wayne, NJ.
ADP is co-hosting the summit in support of the 10th anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Designed specifically for small and midsized businesses, this interactive event aims to help owners learn how to better safeguard information relating to their business, employees and clients by learning more about best practices in cyber security, including:
Identifying current and future cyber risks Protecting employee and client data Protecting money and transactions What to do if attacked
"Innovative, online technologies have transformed how smaller companies conduct nearly every facet of their business, creating exciting growth opportunities," said Anish Rajparia, president of ADP's Small Business Services Division. "At the same time, however, these advancements have created new forms of risk. ADP is pleased to support the National Cyber Security Alliance and its partners to help equip small businesses with the information they need to protect their organizations as they grow," Rajparia added.
Roland Cloutier, vice president and chief security officer at ADP, said: "ADP is committed to helping individuals and the business community—especially owners of small and midsized businesses who have to make careful decisions about how to best deploy their often limited resources—better understand ways to adopt best-in-class, cyber security standards. ADP is proud to support the National Cyber Security Alliance's efforts to educate, train and enable organizations to help protect themselves and their businesses from cyber risks."
Continuing professional education (CPE) credits are available for Summit participants. While there is no fee for this event, space is limited. For more information about the Summit and for registration details, please visit: http://smallbusinesssecuritysummit.eventbrite.com/.
