We invite you to join us for Niles Morning Network!

The third Tuesday of each month the Niles Chamber of Commerce will gather for Niles Morning Network.    We begin at 7:30 am with lite refreshments and informal networking.  At 8:00 am our program will begin with a short (10-15 minutes) educational presentation.  This will be something pertinent to business and ideally something you can put into place almost immediately!  Next we will welcome our newest members.  Finally, every member in the room will be invited to provide us with their 30 second commercial.  This is a great opportunity to connect with our membership and keep your network strong!  Do you have friend who has been thinking about joining the chamber?  Invite them to join us, we always welcome guests and hopefully by the end of the morning they will see why membership is so valuable!

Next Meeting

Tuesday, June 21st, 7:30 – 9:00am.  The morning will begin with a light breakfast and a presentation by Mayank Patel from TeamLogicIT will speak about Cybersecurity-Planning to be Cyber Ready

Mayank Patel from TeamLogic IT will speak about why it is important for small and medium sized businesses to take cybersecurity seriously and how we can take steps to reduce their risk of a cyber attack.

 

Cyber-attacks are a growing threat for small businesses and the U.S. economy. According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Report, the cost of cybercrimes reached $2.7 billion in 2020 alone. Small businesses are attractive targets because they have information that cybercriminals want, and they typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses. According to a recent SBA survey, 88% of small business owners felt their business was vulnerable to a cyber-attack. Yet many businesses can’t afford professional IT solutions, have limited time to devote to cybersecurity, or they don’t know where to begin. Start by learning about common cyber threats, understanding where your business is vulnerable, and taking steps to improve your cybersecurity.

Breakfast Sponsor: INLAND Bank

 

After this short educational presentation we will welcome our newest Chamber Partners and then everyone will give a 30 second intro.  This is a great way to connect with your Chamber Network before the day begins! Please feel free to invite a friend, colleague, or client to join you!
