Website Cybersecurity Series Session 2: Minimizing Google Penalty Risks, Protecting Revenue and Reputation, Determining If Your Website Site is Breached

As of December 31, Google deemed 691,671 websites as dangerous due to Phishing activity and 504,322 websites were identified as hosting Malware. Most of these belonged to small and medium-sized businesses.

  • How would your business be impacted if your website was hacked and penalized or removed from Google?
  • What if customers could no longer find your website online? If Google flags your website, your revenue and reputation could be at stake.
  • We’ll investigate the role that Google plays and offer insight into 10 things you can do today to better protect your website, your business and your client’s. We’ll review case studies as well.

Even in the MBE community, websites have been held ransom by hackers and others have been breached and are vulnerable.

This webinar will also be taught by Duane Coleman, President of Dashboard Interactive.

This is an online event. Please register to receive webinar information. Although this seminar is designed for Class I and II MBEs, all are welcome to join. Session 2 begins March 28th at 12:30 PM (MST)/11:30 AM (PST)/1:30 PM (CST).
