Information stored in a computer is as much at risk to theft and damage as homes and vehicles during a break-in.
With ever-changing advancements in technology and data storage, Dawn Bouch, president of Northeast Tennessee Technology Council, hopes a free seminar Monday will help businesses and individuals become more aware of computer-related threats.
“The way that we are storing data is changing,” Bouch said. “The security threats are becoming more complicated. This is an attempt to help people to try to stay one step ahead so they can protect their information.”
NETTC, which began in 2000 to support technological economic development, is sponsoring the seminar, which will feature a presentation by Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents Beth O’Brien and Scott Wenger called “The Insider Threat, Intellectual Property Theft and Cyber Security.”
