BOCA RATON, Fla.— ADT sponsored America’s Small Business Summit, hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which ran from June 11–13.

At the event, ADT joined small business owners, entrepreneurs and Chamber executives in Washington D.C. to share tools, strategies, and best practices on how to navigate today’s rapidly changing business landscape.

A key topic of the summit was a discussion about cyber security and how small business owners can safely access their digital domains and prevent cyber-attacks. According to the National Small Business Association, a single cyber-attack could cost a small business an average of more than $8,000, as a result of service interruption, tainted reputation and loss of critical data, among other factors.

Tom Dennison, ADT chief information security officer, participated in a panel discussion to share best practices for business owners in pinpointing and addressing cyber security vulnerabilities within their environments.
