The next stop on the FTC’s Start with Security road show is Austin, Texas, on Thursday, November 5th. Even if you can’t be there, you can still participate. And that’s not all. The FTC will be releasing two new resources to help your business start with security, but you can get a sneak peek now.

If you’re Austin-bound, Start with Security kicks off at 9:30 Central Time at the University of Texas’ AT&T Conference Center,1900 University Avenue. The event is co-sponsored by UT’s Robert S. Strauss Center and the Center for Identity.
