Is Your Small Business at Risk?

Expert Advice on the Cost of a Data Breach and

How to Prevent it

Tune in for Mark Wayne’s

interview on July 23 at 8:40

When you hear about data breaches in the news, the focus is always on large corporations, cyber attacks and hackers. And while most small business owners don’t think it could happen to them, one in three breaches involves companies with fewer than 100 employees. In many cases, they are easier to penetrate and tend to have less sophisticated security mechanisms in place making them vulnerable targets.

On July 23, talk to Lynn LaGram, V.P., Small Commercial Underwriting at The Hartford, about how to prevent and prepare for a data breach. She will talk about how something as simple as accidentally leaving a smartphone or laptop behind at a coffee shop can put customer or employee data at risk.  A breach can be disruptive, costly and complex – especially for a small business.

Lynn will share prevention tips including how to secure and dispose of data, controlling physical access to your business computers and how to train employees on security principles.  She will also share the five tips to help prepare for and have a plan in place if the worst case scenario does occur.

Suggested Questions:
Data breaches have been in the news a lot lately, is there are reason for the rise?
Are small businesses really at the same risk as the big guys?
Share some tips to preventing a data breach.
Is there any way to be better prepared if a data breach does occur?
Where can listeners go for more information?

The truth, the nation’s largest youth smoking prevention campaign, is touring throughout the United States this summer, continuing its life-saving mission to educate young people about the health effects, addictiveness and social consequences of tobacco use, as well as the marketing tactics of the tobacco industry.

Each year, young adult truth “tour riders” connect with hundreds of thousands of teens and young people across the country, allowing teens to experience the truth campaign first-hand. With a big orange truth truck, a DJ, music, games and prizes in the truth ‘zone’ on tour, young people get to participate in an experience that is both entertaining and educational. With nearly 86 percent of smokers starting to smoke before age 18, it’s important to reach young people before they make the decision to smoke. As part of a larger tour, truth is visiting more than 50 cities and 25 states this summer, making more than 100 stops along the way. The tour is also participating in some new events and visiting new cities. truth is touring with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival  -  a heavy metal tour – for the first time. The campaign will also visit Music City as part of the Vans Warped Tour, marking truth’s first appearance ever in Nashville as part of that tour.

Music lovers, surfers, thrill seekers and thousands of young people across the country will be able to experience the fun, potentially life-saving messages of the nation’s largest youth smoking prevention tour. In addition, the truth website (www.thetruth.com) will offer a glimpse of life on the road with videos and photos from the tour zone.
