The webinar happens May 16, 2018, at 2 p.m. ET with Anita Campbell, founder and CEO of Small Business Trends, Nicki Saffell, Senior Security Consultant at Brivo, and Sara Polon, owner of Soupergirl, a DC area small business.
These thought leaders will discuss data breaches, inventory shrinkage and theft along with ways to combat them.
