R&R Webinar, Cyber-crime education
R&R News
R&R Insurance is hosting a webinar for Northeast Wisconsin businesses regarding Cyber Crime on June 23 from 9:00-10:00. Unfortunately, cyber-crimes are rampant right now due to COVID19. Below is a brief description of the content my colleague will be covering. It is an educational webinar, not designed for promoting our agency, but rather we are serving as the Knowledge Brokers. Please feel free to share with NEWMA, New North, and Progress Lakeshore members. Jason has been asked to present on this topic for a number of organizations in the state and we wanted to share the learning opportunity specifically with Northeast Wisconsin community business leaders.

Cyber Crime in Wisconsin: The presentation will include statistics and a demonstration of how attacks occur based on real life scenarios and claims data. We will also discuss how organizations can utilize strategic planning for cyber-crime and implement risk mitigation training and defense techniques to lower risk exposure. Registration can be found HERE.
