On May 3, a group of small business owners and entrepreneurs from across the city assembled at South Side business incubator Englewood Blue to hear from three cybersecurity experts about how they can ensure their business is secure online in an age when cyber-fraud has become commonplace.

Vasco L. Bridges III, CEO of JANO Technologies and Executive Director, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses; James Webb, COO, Steadfast; and Jason Volmut, Founder & CEO, CPURX, discussed strategies for choosing cloud providers and the range of cybersecurity solutions that are available to business owners today.

Donnell P. Layne of Black Tech Mecca served as the moderator.
