Arlington Economic Development
Arlington/Ballston, Virginia

Please join the WNG Technology Roundtable when we convene a panel of experts, who will have a conversation with us about cybersecurity for small businesses.

Our Panelists:

- Danyetta Fleming Magana - Covenant Security Solutions, President/Founder
- Vern Mosley - Federal Communications Commission, Senior Cybersecurity Engineer, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau
- Andy Pendergast - Cyber Squared, Co-Founder and Product Director

Our Moderator:

- Nnake Nweke - Chairman of the WNG Technology Roundtable

About Our Topic:

Cyber attacks, including data theft are not just a problem for big corporations; small businesses are often more vulnerable to such attacks due to lack of information, resources, and strategic partners. More than ever before, small businesses heavily rely on the Internet to conduct day-to-day business activities. Small businesses utilize computers and smartphones for email and other online business activities, including maintaining customer information, financial records, personal files, contracts, invoices, payroll, employee data, and proprietary information. Small businesses need to trust that the information they store and transmit electronically is secure and protected against internal and external threats, data loss, downtime, or disaster, such as flood and fire.

We look forward to seeing you on October 21!
