Build your cybersecurity awareness in our 4-part educational series. Each session is under 30 minutes.

Breach Breakdown: A Case Study of a Real-World Attack

October 4th at 1 PM ET
Rigid Bits will take you behind the scenes of breach investigations to help businesses be more prepared for whatever may come their way. Hear about common breaches and how they unfold, gain tips and best practices that can help improve your response efforts, and learn from the mistakes of others.

IT vs Cybersecurity

October 11th at 1 PM ET
IT and Cybersecurity often get lumped together, but as much as they have overlaps – there are some major differences in each practice. Join us to learn what exactly those differences are, and how to use that to create checks and balances for your business.

Personal Cybersecurity

October 18th at 1 PM ET

Learn how to take a risk-based approach to protecting your identity in your everyday use of technology and when you interact with your own sensitive data. Helping your staff build good ‘personal cybersecurity’ habits will go a long way in creating a stronger cybersecurity culture for your business.


Creating a Culture of Cybersecurity

October 25th at 1 PM ET

For many offices, getting everyone on board with cybersecurity initiatives is often harder than the implementing the security practices. It all comes down to culture. We’ll identify some of the common challenges we see and thoughts on how to overcome them.

Special Guest Webinars

Each week, we will feature an interview with special guests to hear their perspectives on cybersecurity challenges facing businesses today. Bring your own questions for the open Q&A. 

Attendees of each event will be entered into a random drawing giveaway, varies by session, see registration link for details
