Who Should Attend?
This seminar is an executive briefing for business owners and managers who want to protect their company data from hackers, natural disasters and even their own employees.

Phillip Long, CEO of Business Information Solutions, will present on common misunderstandings every company has about their backups, the only way to know if data is being backed up properly and the two-step backup system every business must have in place.

“As a business owner, I understand the importance of uptime” said Long, owner of BIS. “If we experienced even one hour of downtime, I know just how much that would cost my business and it’s definitely not cheap.” (Photo: Phillip Long)
