Last year, KBOO suffered a website breach/hack from cryptocurrency
miners. Jenka Soderberg and Gaba Rodriguez will share the lessons they
learned from the attack and will offer tips on how you can better secure
your website and/or online presence. Most smaller organizations, such as
radio stations, non-profits, and small businesses, often depend on just
one or two people to maintain their sites. This can be both a good and
bad thing. As a result of the breach, Jenka, Gaba, and other KBOO
personnel learned some techniques to lock everything down and keep their systems secure — even with limited resources!

Join us for a great presentation about their experience along with a
discussion of ways to help you prevent a hack of your own systems!
We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking
afterwards. We hope to see you there!
