Free membership! Special IT offer for Chamber members.

Walsh College Information Assurance Center is offering free memberships to small business members of the Detroit Regional Chamber. The IAC provides businesses and organizations with education, information and training in responding to cyber threats from terrorists or criminals and safeguarding the nation's information assets.

"Small businesses may be most vulnerable to attacks on their IT systems because their employees aren't aware of protection measures or because they may not know how to safeguard their data," says IAC Director Jeff Recor. "By offering this service free to small businesses, we hope to protect their customers as well as their vendors."

Membership in the IAC provides access to knowledge, expertise, projects and research. The Center offers educational programs through professional services, industry certifications and degree programs. Membership benefits include:

* A knowledge repository and message board with 24/7 access.

* An industry-specific newsletter on current threats and best practices.

* Notification of alerts and threats that originate anywhere in the world.

Protecting the technology infrastructure is essential to our economy and our national security. That's why The President's National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace was established and why the National Security Agency has designated Walsh College in Troy as a Center of Academic Excellence to provide educational programs to protect us from these threats. Walsh is the first school in Michigan and one of only 59 in the country to be recognized with this important designation.

IAC membership applications are available at: http://iacmembers.walshcollege.edu/mbrinfo.asp. For more information, call Jeff Recor at (248) 823-1369.
