By Mike Rhodes, Editor-in-Chief—

MUNCIE, IN—Now more than ever, it is important for your company to be aware of and be proactive in keeping your company computers locked-down and secure from threats from bad actors in the internet world. Just about every week we hear about a new threat or a security breach at a company we may do business with. 

According to IBM, “The global average cost of a data breach in 2023 was $4.45 million, a 15% increase over the previous 3 years. 51% of organizations are planning to increase security investments as a result of a breach, including incident response (IR) planning and testing, employee training, and by using threat detection and response tools.”

On Leap Day, February 29, 2024, LEAP Managed IT in Muncie will be hosting a special Leap Day Event at Minnetrista Museum and Gardens in Muncie. Gary Thomas, Senior Partner at Leap Managed IT said, ” This event will be an afternoon packed with learning, innovation, and fun.”

The afternoon will consist of two parts: A Business Leaders Cybersecurity Workshop and a Technology Showcase.
