August 20, 2021 (San Marcos) - The Office of Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-50) will host a free online cybersecurity webinar for small business owners and organization leaders August 25, 2021 from 11:00 – 12:00pm PT. The Chief of Cybersecurity for the Western United States from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will conduct a detailed briefing and answer attendee questions.

Congressman Issa said: “Ransomware attacks are on the rise, and the world’s most dangerous cybercriminals are trying to seize control of both private data and public systems, hold them hostage and demand a ransom is paid. It’s time to help our small businesses and local organizations fight back, and that’s why I invited the leading ransomware experts to brief our community on best practices and answer our questions. I hope all constituent small businesses and organizational leaders will attend this Zoom event.”
