Hometown Bank has partnered with Ohio Attorney General's office, SBS Cybersecurity and the Ohio Bankers League to bring a cyber security roadshow to Kent on September 18th. The roadshow will give consumers and business owners the tools to combat the recent uptick in cyber fraud that has targeted Ohioans.
“Cyber criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated,” commented Scott Mikula, (VP - Hometown Bank) “The recent WannaCry and Petya ransomware assault were the largest cyber-attacks in the world to-date and impacted businesses and consumers everywhere. This session will give the Portage County area community the tools to protect themselves, their accounts, and their data.”
The roadshow is free to attend and will explore current trends in cybercrime, the evolution of ransomware and cyber extortion and best practices for managing cyber risk.
It will specifically focus on:
Why businesses are a growing target for cybercriminals
Which steps consumers should consider to safeguard their data and accounts
And, what resources are available to customers for outside help
Panelists will be available for informal questions after the panel session ends.
Doors open to this free event at 5:00, with the seminar running from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at The Kent American Legion's Underwood Hall, 1945 Mogadore Rd., Kent.
RSVP's are appreciated, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by September 11th.
