ROME – Congresswoman Claudia Tenney on Tuesday hosted a cybersecurity workshop for small businesses that need protection.

The workshop was held at the Rome Chamber of Commerce, and it was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the Mohawk Valley Small Business Development Center and Anjolen Cybersecurity.

Representatives for 20 businesses attended the workshop, some of which sell products and others that sell services.

According to local business officials, cybersecurity threats do not discriminate, and the victim doesn’t always recover.

“It could be the downfall of a company,” said Roxanne Mutchler, director of the Small Business Development Center. “Unfortunately there are many companies that do not recover as the result of a cyber attack. Some do and many do, but there are others that are unable to.”

“Nearly 50% of small businesses experience cyber-attacks,” Tenney said in a news release. “However, our small businesses rarely have the additional resources to invest in improving cybersecurity as it is often a complex and costly undertaking. This forum will provide our local small business community with training on methods to mitigate cyber-attack risks and provide guidance on ways to harden cyber infrastructure. I am grateful to the Mohawk Valley SBDC and the Rome Chamber of Commerce for working alongside our office to provide this important training for our local business community.”
