Business owners learn ways to prevent hackers at cyber-security summit
RHINELANDER - Northwoods business owners gathered at Nicolet College in Rhinelander Thursday for a presentation on how to become more cyber-secure.

Director of Grow North Brittany Beyer says online threats are evolving, and it's important for businesses to stay vigilant.

"We have to think about the continuity of business now that technology is so prevalent inside of how we do business," said Beyer. "We can't forget [about] it just because we're in the Northwoods."

The dark web consists of sites where people can purchase passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information.

Everyone at the presentation got a free dark web scan.

Many were surprised to find out some of their business' information was compromised.

Rimon Moses is the CEO of R-M-M Solutions, a Wausau-based company that specializes in technology consulting.

"There are a lot of misconceptions about who the hackers are actually targeting," said Moses. "A lot of small businesses don't think that they have anything of value or that the hackers are targeting them, they're only targeting the big companies."

Moses says 43% of cyber-attacks are targeted at small businesses.
