Learn to protect yourself and your business with Jon Haass

Cybersecurity is in the news and yet it can seem to have nothing to do with you and me in our daily lives. Yet, today our small businesses have a complex digital footprint; on the web, via email, online shopping and banking, quickbooks, and more. More of our life is accessible and stored “in the cloud”. This talk brings this important topic down to an actionable level for you and your work. What is at risk and what steps can enhance your cybersecurity? Anyone with a smartphone and email is encouraged to attend.


Jon Haass     Dr. Haass was the founding faculty of the Cyber Intelligence and Security degree programs at Embry-Riddle

     Aeronautical University in Prescott. He was appointed by former Governor Ducey to represent northern

     Arizona on the Arizona Cybersecurity Team. In 2021 he founded the Prescott Regional Opportunity

     Foundation with its Center for the Future incubator / accelerator for technology companies. He works with

     public and private sector organizations to assess and improve their cyber security stance.
