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.
