YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Seven local experts on cybersecurity will tell how to avoid cyber breaches, ransomware attacks and costly shutdowns during a free webinar July 13 at noon presented by The Business Journal and sponsored by the Better Business Bureau of the Mahoning Valley.

Breaches, ransomsware and shutdowns can do serious damage to your business and your customers.
