“We are excited to team up with Marquette University to offer these free seminars for a common goal – protection through education,” says Jim Temmer, BBB CEO and President. “We want individuals and businesses of all sizes to take action toward protecting themselves from cyber threats and attacks, and the first step in prevention is awareness.”

“The cyber world is more treacherous than many small businesses believe,” said Thomas Kaczmarek, director of Marquette’s Center for Cyber Security Awareness and Cyber Defense. “We have developed a workshop exercise to teach smaller organizations about the threats and help them start to use a cyber security framework to protect and prepare.”
