Networking Opportunities for small business owners - December

Most networking groups wind down as Christmas approaches - but there are some important events business owners should know about in the lead-up to the Christmas -- New Year trading period.

The first of these is a small business briefing on cyber security and its importance - particularly over the holiday period.

It will discuss why small businesses are most at risk, how to avoid being a victim and how they will be affected by the Federal Government's new mandatory data breach reporting laws which come into effect from February.

The briefing is sponsored by Local Area Marketing, is free to attend and will be held in the Norwest Business Park, Bella Vista from 9.45am on Thursday 14 December. Full details here. Pre-registration essential.
