STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (Oct. 29, 2018)– If you own or manage a business, the adequacy of your cybersecurity should be a major concern. According to the FBI, the collective impact of cyber intrusions is staggering.

The free “lunch and learn” event will be presented by cybersecurity authority Patrick Buono, president and CEO of Staten Island-based Aurora Computer Technology and one of the New York Metro area’s foremost experts in information technology and cyber-data protection.
The educational workshop will address a variety of vital topics, such as Security Awareness; Cyber Attacks You’re Likely to Face, and Policies and Practices for Prevention and Recovery.
