BRING A FRIEND!
In 2017, there were 53,308 confirmed security incidents and 2,216 data breaches across 65 different countries, including the infamous Equifax breach where personal data of over 145 million people was stolen. On average, breaches cost companies $11.7 million, and can run higher at around $17 million for financial services and utility/energy companies. For small to medium sized businesses, who are targeted 43% of the time, this number averages at around $2.3 million. Furthermore, attackers are relentless. Companies will experience an average of 130 security breaches each year.
As a result, approximately $1 trillion is expected to spent on cybersecurity between 2017 to 2021. This huge increase in demand has led to a huge increase in cybersecurity jobs worldwide. Currently there are over 209,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide. Overall, women hold only 11% of cybersecurity positions globally. Yet, they hold 25 percent of tech jobs, and they make up 50% of the population.
Women In Business Open House Meet and Greet
It was so nice to see so many of you and hear what you are doing in the business world! I can't wait to see and hear from you at our next meeting or just around town.
July Ladies Night Out
What a fun night out! Some of you were very brave and all enjoyed the treats! Thank You Linda for hosting and sharing some of your adventures. It was nice to hear of your successes and your change of plans as you grew your business.
Tooele City Library 128 W Vine St
Jami plans to talk about business resources, including resources to help business owners direct their staff members to free training resources. When employees can learn how to use technology tools, enhance their communication skills, etc... owners and managers put their energy into other things and more effectively build their businesses.
The “Summer Experience” for this year is a pretty big animal. So I’ll try to have some takeaways or give an over view for folks who want to stay a little longer than normal. I don’t want it to take away from the time available.
Since the library is not open for business until 10, I will be at the library before 8 to get things arranged. Attendees can enter at the door just next to the main entrance and head into the community room. I’ll put some directional signage up. The rest of the library will be locked. But we will have easy access to the meeting room and restrooms.
Come see what business resources our local libraries have to offer.
Remember to bring a friend! I will have the summer schedule of meetings and activities so you can plan ahead!
