The tour, hosted by NC Tech, will make five stops across the state, visiting members of the association and connecting with its partners.

The local stop will feature a free lunch and panel discussion on “Cyber Security Readiness – Is Your Business Cyber Resilient?” from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at tekMountain.

Richard Hayes, senior security specialist with Infranet; Kristina Allebach, chief information officer with REEDS Jewelers; and Daniel Staples, director of information technology at CastleBranch Corp., will make up the panel.

The discussion will include information on some of the best practices used by organizations to keep themselves protected from security breaches.
