Nov. 7 – An upcoming workshop offered by Norfolk County’s Economic Development team will help small business owners better deal with threats to their online security.

From spam emails to malware and more, the event will be led by Bill Dungey of Brantford’s Complete Technology Solutions and explore the current threat landscape and challenge existing ideas about internet security.

“Our job is to give Norfolk business owners the tools they need to succeed,” said Chris Garwood, Norfolk County Economic Development Supervisor. “Being able to identify possible threats and keep the online portion of a business safe is extremely important for entrepreneurs.”

The free workshop will be held Nov. 14 at the Venture Norfolk building (4077 Hwy. 3 East) in Simcoe from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. To register, or obtain more information on the series, visit
