    Hi Craig,
    I’d like your pricing information for a 1 or 2-hour Cybersecurity/Business Security class, offered virtually, with no CE to our members. I’m not sure if we need the full “How Technology Can Ruin Your Business” course, but would appreciate details including pricing for that as well. We are a small association with less than 4,000 members, and will be conducting all training during 2021 virtually. Thank you.
