    NEBB 23rd Annual Golf Tournament
    NEBB Annual Conference attendees and guests are invited to join their colleagues for the 23rd year of the Annual Golf Tournament. The tournament is being held at the Greenbrier's famous Meadows Course. The Golf Tournament will be held on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 starting with a 10:00 am modified shotgun. The Old White, the first 18-hole golf course at The Greenbrier, was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald and opened for play in 1914. A legend of golf history at The Greenbrier, the course was named for the well-known Old White Hotel, which stood on the grounds from 1858 through 1922. After sustaining substantial damage during the flood of 2016, which forced the cancellation of The Greenbrier Classic, The Old White reopened in July of 2017, fully restored to its original glory. By fully embracing the original Macdonald/Raynor elements, the course has been overwhelmingly embraced by PGA TOUR players and guests alike.

    Business & Leadership Practices: #1 Cybercrime - How Does Cybercrime Impact my Business?
    Cybercrime why? For a Cybercriminal the reason is simple, it’s easy, it’s hard to get caught and it’s profitable, really profitable. Cybercrime created over $1.5 trillion dollars in profits in 2018 alone. For an individual with the right skillset, cybercrime can be incredibly lucrative. An individual cybercriminal can make upwards of half a million dollars in a year simply by trafficking in stolen data. Cybercrime damages for corporations are predicted to cost upwards of $6 trillion dollars annually by 2021. With the National Debt being $22 trillion dollars, you can see the impact that Cybercrime has on businesses today. Cybercrime now accounts for more than 50% of all crime in the US surpassing physical theft which, up until 2017, was the most common type of fraud against corporations for over a decade. Malicious hackers are now attacking computers and networks at a rate of one attack every 39 seconds with 78% of surveyed organizations being affected by a successful cyber-attack in 2018 costing corporations between $10,000 - $100,000 to recover from each cyber-attack. The most common methods of experiencing Cybercrime attacks are eMail and Social Media. Email is the most commonly exploited attack vector, costing organizations millions annually. Not surprising, since over 30% of all phishing emails received in the US are opened daily. And for small to medium-sized business, the damage caused from a cyber-attack can prove fatal: 60% of businesses fold within 6 months of falling victim to a cyber-attack. Don’t be one of them!
