May 24, 2017

“Small and medium-sized businesses from across South Carolina were in Columbia Tuesday for a Cybersecurity Summit, to learn how to better protect themselves and your personal information. …

“Those governmental agencies or businesses have your information, so businesses are doing all they can to protect it,” says Ted Pitts, president and CEO of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, which hosted the summit. “But ultimately, if a breach occurs, the individuals whose information is housed inside those systems is vulnerable and compromised. So businesses want to be good, strong protectors of people’s personal information and this summit is an effort to try to help businesses secure that, understand what the threats are out there, because it’s an ever-changing environment.”
