Wisconsin Event Recap: Protecting Yourself from Cybercrime

Strategic Wealth Partners continued the focus on protection from cybercrime this fall with a client event in the Milwaukee area. Guest speaker, Dr. Thomas Kaczmarek, Director of Marquette University’s Center for Cyber Security Awareness and Cyber Defense, focused on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework of identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover as he shared tips and took questions from the audience.

Dr. Kaczmarek reminded the attendees not to engage with hackers if they do become a victim of cybercrime, “If you do get hacked and receive an email demanding ransom, do not engage with the hacker. You should reach out to an IT professional or law enforcement for help because hackers will often deposit a new virus on your machine after receiving a ransom payment.”
