“Small businesses use technology to increase productivity and capabilities. Just imagine how loosing control over these necessities can set them back?” said David Margulies, Director, Union County NJSBDC at Kean University. “We all need to be well versed on how to best mitigate this risk to ensure business continuity.”


What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?!: 

The diverse array of networked devices, ranging from cars and kitchen appliances to heart monitors, able to collect and exchange data through embedded sensors. The seminar will explore potential risks the IoT poses to small businesses and best practices for securing networked devices.


Several expert speakers will provide valuable insights, industry best practices, and even a glimpse of the “DARK WEB” at The Internet of Things seminar. Breakfast will be served.
