SPECIAL MEETING – Monroe Gigabit Project RFP Summary Results will be shared and discussed.

Unfortunately, no one is immune from today’s cyber threats and crimes. Smaller organizations tend to be attractive targets for hackers and threats. Typically, smaller organizations have taken some but not all steps to protect themselves against cyber-attacks. Many do not make the appropriate investments, either. The lack of awareness and resources brings a constant need to communicate with each other about cyber incidents and how to respond to and prepare for them.

The Monroe Gigabit Project is very pleased to bring a local expert to the May monthly meeting. On Friday, May 12th, please join us to hear from Michael A. Kolba, Jr., of Sensible Technology Solutions, LLC. He will provide helpful strategies and resources to help determine weaknesses in smaller organization cyber security management. Mr. Kolba has more than twenty years’ experience with improving operational efficiency, data security, and system performance enhancement.
