 Detroit, Mich.— Auxiom: The Gold Standard in Business IT, hosts its first-ever Small Medium Business Security 101 (SMBS-101) Summit from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, September 12. The event will be held in the heart of downtown Detroit in the Julian C. Madison Building at Bamboo Detroit, 1420 Washington Blvd., #301. Matt Loria, partner and CEO of Auxiom, will lead the presentation.

An educational event to help safeguard small and medium-sized businesses and their clients’ data, the discussion will center on how these companies can take a proactive and cost-effective approach to mitigating the risk of cyberattacksuch as the recent WannaCry and Petya outbreaks that brought businesses around the globe to a standstill.

Types of cyberattacks, including ransomware, malware, viruses and more, will be examined as well as exploration of the security of cloud products and other system vulnerabilities of which most business owners and leaders are unaware.

“Small and medium-sized businesses are extremely vulnerable to coming under attack,” said Loria. “Especially because they think ‘bad guys’ won’t bother with a company of their size. Little do they know that ‘bad guys’ are constantly ‘knocking,’ looking for an open door or window, until they get in their systems.”
