West Palm Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/14/2015 -- The latest statistical data collected regarding security threats suggests 81 percent of all data breaches happen to small and medium sized businesses. Unfortunately, data breaches are extremely costly, with the average small company spending $300,000 to fix the issues created by a single data breach. 46 percent of consumers avoid businesses who have had a data breach, and as a result of the financial impact, 60 percent of small and medium businesses close within six months of a data breach.
In response to such a serious issue, Brad Deflin, an experienced business executive with significant success at both the corporate level, and in the pioneering of three successful start-up companies, will be teaching business owners how to lessen their risk of this happening to them. The speaking sessions will take place at the Total Wealth Symposium in The Bahamas October 14th – 17th, 2015.
The asset protection and privacy expert will be lending advice on the latest techniques and overlooked solutions in the realm of data security. On Wednesday October 14th, Brad will be hosting a 40-minute session concerning "The Personalization of Cyber Risk - How Did it Happen, What Does the Future Hold, and What You Can Do About It". On Saturday October 17th, he will be presenting a 30-minute workshop entitled "Effectively Protecting Your Privacy and Personal Information in the Digital Age."
Brad Deflin, founder of Total Digital Security, stated "In today's digital world, cyber attacks are a real threat to small and medium businesses. While large corporations can quickly recover from a data breach because of their huge profits and significant market share, smaller businesses simply don't have that luxury. Consequently, it's vital that they take steps to prevent data breaches from happening, like using Digital Document Vaults for Security and Posterity. Business owners who bury their heads in the sand and behave as if data breach threats don't exist are putting themselves at risk of losing everything."
As Deflin continues, "Data security is about more than just protecting the business' bottom line. It's also about protecting customers. In this day and age, criminals are carrying out cyber attacks with the intention of targeting personal information. Identity theft and fraud are at an all-time high. At the Total Wealth Symposium, I'll be teaching business owners about the 4 Fundamentals of Effective and Sustainable Cyber Risk Management so that they can ensure that a data breach never threatens the trust they have built with their customer base."
"While my experience in data security has spanned many industries, I have always had a passion for creating and building businesses and practices. My intention during these sessions and workshops is to help business owners find the best way to implement Full Network and Wifi Security into their day-to-day operations so that they can continue to thrive without uncertainty, fear, or worry of what the future holds."
