What It Is AND What You Can Do To Protect Yourself

The past year, we’ve seen massive security breaches such as Equifax, Yahoo, LinkedIn, and Slack, with billions of email addresses and passwords compromised. According to the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology, in the past two years there has been "a relatively sharp increase in hackers and adversaries targeting small businesses," and your organizational data is at risk of being bought and sold. To better protect your business in the new year, join us for this critical webinar.

“The Ugly Truths About Ransomware: How Your Business Can Detect, Protect, And (God Forbid) Recover”

Wednesday, October 11th From 11:00 AM to 12:00PM EST

Who should attend: CEOs, Business Owners and Strategic Planning Executives for businesses in Rochester and Buffalo who value the safety of their data, their clients and their employees. Those who dedicate a majority of their day strategically plan and execute online security measures for their firm, agency, organization or business must attend this invaluable, informative event.

“Why Should I Register Today?”


  • Over 50% of small businesses were experienced an online attack in 2016 (smallbiztrends.com)
  • Only 14 percent of small businesses rate their ability to mitigate cyber risks, vulnerabilities and attacks as highly effective.
  • 60 percent of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyber attack.
  • 48 percent of data security breaches are caused by acts of malicious intent. Human error or system failure account for the rest.

If your business ever becomes the victim of a cybercrime attack where client data is compromised, you will NOT get much sympathy. You will be investigated and questioned about what you did to prevent this from happening – and if the answer is not adequate, you can be found liable, facing serious fines and lawsuits EVEN IF you trusted an outsourced IT support company to protect you. Claiming ignorance is not an acceptable defense, and this giant, expensive and reputation-destroying nightmare will land squarely on YOUR shoulders. But it doesn’t end there…

According to state law, you’re required to tell your customers that YOU exposed them to cybercriminals. Your competition will have a heyday over this. Clients will be irate and leave in droves. Employees will blame you. Your bank will NOT come to your rescue either, and unless you have a very specific type of crime insurance, any financial losses will be denied coverage by your general business liability policy.

Please do NOT underestimate the importance of these threats. It is NOT safe to assume your IT company (or guy) is doing everything they should be doing to protect you – register now to discover the latest trends that cyber criminals are now using to invade your network and what secure options are available to keep your data, clients data, and employees safe from attack.

Financial Law Compliance Lunch and Learn Seminar, “What You Must Have In Place Now To Be DFS 23
NYCRR 500 Compliant”

We frequently get calls from financial firms desperate for help because they received an urgent letter from a client or DFS asking them to validate their IT security systems. Often this is the second or third request. They ignored first several requests – or more likely the firm’s leaders either didn’t know how to answer the questions or were afraid to answer truthfully for fear of repercussions.

It doesn’t have to be that way for your firm. We can show you a simple process to achieve and maintain compliance. OST importantly we will teach you to recognize the telltale signs that your business and data are NOT protected (leaving you a sitting duck) so you can get ahead of these threats and PREVENT them from happening in the first place.

Join us August 3rd for the Webinar version (10am – 11am EST) or our Lunch and Learn Presentation (11:30am – 1pm) of “What You Must Have In Place Now To Be DFS 23 NYCRR 500 Compliant” Seats are limited to 30 for each event, click on the event button of your choice to

Capstone Hosts Free Recycling Service To Benefit Center For Youth

October 2012 was Capstone’s 1st annual Green IT month, and as a service to the community, Capstone offered FREE pickup and SECURE disposal of unwanted office computers and other electronics. Over 20 businesses throughout the Rochester area took part in this city-wide effort to reduce, recycle, and reuse their old technical devices. Near $1,000 was raised through monetary donations during these events to support a local organization, The Center For Youth.

“We think that the Center For Youth provides invaluable services to our community, so as a fundraiser for them and as a service to Rochester businesses, we offered free pickup and secure disposal of all the unwanted electronics laying around in offices throughout the Greater Rochester area. It’s an important responsibility that all business owners should take part in.” says Sitima Fowler, CEO of Capstone Information Technologies. “Your computer is made with a wide variety of components, many of which are toxic. When old computers are disposed of improperly, these substances can enter the environment; causing pollution and associated plant and animal death, along with birth defects. Rochester businesses are only one phone call away from making sure this doesn’t happen with their old devices.”

If your business has old computers collecting dust and taking up space, call 585-546-4120 to find out how you can schedule a pick up for your business.
