This event has been cancelled and is closed for registration. 
Join local professionals for an evening of networking and knowledge on Wednesday, December 7! Cyber-attacks are on the rise and just last year nearly 50% targeted small businesses. This year, attacks have been experienced with even greater frequency. To help, the Carolina Cyber Center of Montreat College is presenting a jargon-free program to help accounting professionals understand basic and fundamental actions that can be taken to protect individuals and organizations. We will raise awareness and introduce concrete steps that can lower the risk of being damaged by a cyber-attack by 80% or more and be implemented in a short time frame with little or no technical experience.

Your ticket purchase will include access to the private room, heavy appetizers and one drink ticket. This event is planned and hosted by the Asheville Networking Group.*This is a non-CPE event
