The United States is now the No. 1 target for cyber-attacks. The cost of the average data breach for a U.S. company climbed to $7.91 million in 2018 with 43 percent of cyber-attacks targeted at small businesses.*  On behalf of the FBI, in partnership with Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE) and Lockton, we are extending this invitation to participate in an executive-level briefing, on cybersecurity, specifically tailored to San Diego’s commercial businesses.  Please join Assistant Special Agent in Charge Omer Meisel and Senior Special Agent Pete Casey for a briefing on:

  • Specific domain threats – we will discuss specific threats that might impact your business, and discuss resources available to help protect against those threats.
  • Counterintelligence threats – we will discuss specific areas currently targeted by nation states and provide details regarding their resources, methods, and tactics. We will also address concerns related to international travel by executives.

If you are interested in attending, please confirm with Taylor Dunne (td@sandiegobusiness.org) by May 30. Space is extremely limited and you must be pre-registered.
