Local Business Owner Joins InfraGard

Irmo, South Carolina: Co-Founder of Turtle Creek Concepts, Mike Ward, joins the SC Chapter of InfraGard to help share information and better protect small businesses. As cybersecurity threats grow more and more quickly, it is imperative to make sure that companies stay updated with the most relevant information. As a member of InfraGard, Ward will have access to information related to cybersecurity threats.

"It is important to stay updated with information. Honestly, there are many places where we can find cybersecurity information. However, utilizing InfraGard's information system allows me to pay attention to what's the most important and what's happening right now.", says Ward. As a managed security services provider, staying up-to-date with the latest cybersecurity concerns is important to Ward.

While many industries utilize the technologies, risks can vary from one side of the spectrum to the other. Even within the same industries, threats and risks may vary from organization to organization. Turtle Creek Concepts uses cybersecurity information to assist with cybersecurity audits, planning, and building services that will be most beneficial to small businesses. Small businesses are some of the most vulnerable businesses in the United States and need more protections in place as threats increase.
