PROFESSOR PRINCE AND ASHLI JONES ’21 PRESENT AT CYBERSECURITY: SAFEGUARDING YOUR SMALL BUSINESS

CybersecurityOctober 2020 — In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Associate Professor of Lawyering Skills Samantha Prince and Ashli Jones ’21 provided an overview of the cybersecurity legal landscape, including the use of websites, privacy policy transparency, and data breach notification laws during “Cybersecurity: Safeguarding Your Small Business,” a webinar hosted by the Penn State Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Harrisburg LaunchBox. While many small-business owners are unaware of the cyber-threats facing their operation, Prince notes, “In the age of COVID-19, cybersecurity is especially important as many businesses are turning to online sales and their employees are working remotely. This paradigm shift makes small businesses easy targets for data breaches.”
