Chamber of Commerce to present forum on hacking

We’ve all been subjected to hacking, whether it’s a hacked email or social media account, but hacking presents a huge problem for many here in Bakersfield.

“I think it’s something people have experienced,” Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce CEO Nick Ortiz said during a June 20 interview on “The Richard Beene Show.” “We have definitely had people who are subject of ransomware, where they have to pay in order to get their computers unlocked.”

As part of an educational effort to inform small businesses about hacking, the Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the ARRC Technology and Sophos to provide a seminar from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 29. The event will be held at ARRC Technology’s Bakersfield office, 1600 Mill Rock Way. 

Just some of the topics they seminar will cover:

  • More about phishing and how to stop it
  • Common tactics hackers use in their phishing attacks
  • The amount of damage hackers can inflict on your business
  • How to stop Ransomware before it stops you
  • Tools to educate your users on the threats
  • How to facilitate a positive security awareness culture
