Lakewood Ranch, FL, March 05, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Cyber security expert Rob Lammert will speak on Internet security threats affecting businesses at a seminar titled, "See Inside the Mind of a Hacker," Thursday, March 26, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Polo Grill & Bar, 10670 Boardwalk Loop, Lakewood Ranch, Florida 34202.
Sponsored by MapleTronics Computers, the informational seminar is intended for information technology (IT) directors, chief information officers (CIOs) and owners of local businesses and manufacturing companies.
"When we think of security for a business, it's easy to see the locks on doors or an alarm system for after-hours protection," said Craig Troyer, MapleTronics Florida Regional Manager. "However, a company's intangibles – the digital assets created and stored every day – are highly valuable and sought after by cyber criminals. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable because they have money and important data that hackers seek, but they may not have the security practices in place that larger corporations have."
This presentation will address potential security threats and data breaches, and ways that companies can protect their information. Answers to the following questions will be provided:
· What are criminal hackers?
· What is their motivation?
· What tools do they use?
· Whom do they target?
· What defenses does a company need?
Presenter Rob Lammert is the North Central Channel Manager for ESET, an Internet security company serving businesses and organizations. Lammert has 15 years of IT experience in various roles, including lead systems architect in the healthcare and finance industries and other private sector companies. He has been with ESET for four years.
