Kassouf hosts cybersecurity workshop


*This event is postponed. We will share the new date here once it is confirmed.*

As part of Kassouf’s commitment to keeping you and your business safe and secure, we have partnered with cybersecurity expert Darren Mott to provide a series of educational opportunities about cybersecurity. Whether you operate a small business with just a few employees or manage a large enterprise, cybersecurity matters more than ever in today’s digital landscape.

Thursday, October 26

11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.


If you’re concerned about data breaches, phishing attacks, or employee negligence, our CyberSharp series will help you develop a plan. As a retired FBI Special Agent, Darren possesses a unique position to explain the threat landscape, drawing on 20 years of experience with the FBI’s cyber and counter terrorism units. Kassouf Principal and Chief Information Officer Russ Dorsey has over 30 years of experience in information services, spanning multiple industries and a wide spectrum of changing technologies.

We’re kicking off the first session during Cybersecurity Awareness Month. CyberSharp is a continuing education series. You do not have to attend all sessions to participate, but the series will be more meaningful if you do.

This event is perfect for anyone who makes decisions regarding your workplace’s IT department and cybersecurity measures, especially those in small-to-medium sized companies. If your company isn’t making decisions in these areas, now is the time to start by tapping into Russ and Darren’s knowledge and experience through CyberSharp.

This event is offered in a hybrid format with a limited number of in-person spots available at Kassouf, which include complimentary lunch. Virtual attendees will receive Zoom login details the week of the webinar.
