Risk Management for Small Businesses
Presented by Jon Walden and Jason Garrapy
Risk management: noun; to increase the probability and impact of positive events and decrease the probability and impact of negative events.
Risk is an inherent part of being in business. Trying to completely eliminate risk from your business is unrealistic and can be prohibitively expensive or cause you be so risk-averse that your business never grows, so the challenge for start-up and small business owners is to identify which risks post a threat to successful operations while finding the proper balance between peace of mind and profitability.
Attend this free workshop where we will:
- Identify the common internal and external risks associated with start-up and small business;
- Identify situations which may cause risk for a small business; and
- Identify the most common cybersecurity risks, prevention actions, and recovery solutions.
