TULSA - The U.S. Small Business Administration, and the Tulsa chapter of SCORE, are hosting a free Information and Cyber Security Workshop, on Tuesday, for small business owners.
The two groups report that small businesses are the most vulnerable to computer crimes because they are not properly prepared.
With the average attack costing roughly $188,000, that risk is what they hope to change.
Participants will learn about different types of security threats, how they can address those threats and what technologies are available to keep them safe.
"Anything vulnerable to a cyber attack should have some sort of protection in place," said SCORE vice chairman Cal Morris.
The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., on the ONEOK Level at Chapman Stadium on the University of Tulsa campus.
