CyberOhio Business Summit Offers Help
In the fall of 2016, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine formed an initiative called CyberOhio in order to assist Ohio businesses against data security threats. The goal is to help foster a legal, technical, and collaborative cybersecurity environment in order to help Ohio businesses, particularly small business, protect themselves and thrive.
Mr. DeWine has since created the Cybersecurity Advisory Board, composed of industry experts and business leaders. The Board will provide guidance for the Attorney General’s initiatives on cybersecurity. Two of our own NFIB State Board Members are also on Mr. DeWine’s Cybersecurity Advisory Board; Allen Perk, President of XLN SYSTEMS and Bob Kozel, Chief Executive Officer, eInformatics. Both Allen & Bob will be sure that the concerns and protection of Ohio’s small businesses will be addressed and answered.
Comprehensive training and education are key elements of CyberOhio and is one of the 5 initiatives of the CyberOhio program. As such, you are invited to attend the first CyberOhio Business Summit on Friday, March 31, 2017 at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center, Ohio.
