The Chamber is committed to connecting our members to valuable resources that not only support their efforts but also build a stronger community through networking and fostered connections. We are proud to launch a new series – Small Business Academy! Every other month beginning this November we will explore topics critical to building a strong small business and empowering our members with expanded skills! The first presentation in this series – November 4th at 8:30am – will focus on the basics of cyber security and feature Theresa Jones business consultant for LSBDC (Louisiana Small Business Development Center) specializing in Cyber Security & Information Technology. Theresa is playfully known as the Cyber Lady, yet there is nothing whimsical about her drive and determination to continue furthering her career professionally. She proudly serves on the Board of Directors as Membership Coordinator & IT Sector Chief for the InfraGard National Board (Louisiana) partnership with the FBI; and as the SCORE Mentors – Cyber Security Trainer. Theresa is the owner and principal consultant for EVALV IQ (pronounced evolve). Her agency is the first female, minority-owned Cyber Security consulting firm in the state of Louisiana. EVALV IQ brings the latest technology, security resources, and cyber education into the southeastern market. Theresa M. Jones hails from Metro New Orleans.
Back to the Business of Cyber: The Internet allows businesses of all sizes and from any location to reach new and larger markets and provides opportunities to work more efficiently by using computer-based tools. Whether a company is thinking of adopting cloud computing or just using email and maintaining a website, cybersecurity should be a part of the plan. Theft of digital information has become the most commonly reported fraud, surpassing physical theft. Every business that uses the Internet is responsible for creating a culture of security that will enhance business and consumer confidence. Join us as we discuss the top ten cyber security tips for small businesses over breakfast in person or virtually via zoom. The Academy is free of charge, but space is limited!
