Free business seminar on data hacking set for June 20

The Berkeley Springs-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce and Blue Ridge Community & Technical College continue the 2023 Morgan County Business Seminar Series on Tuesday, June 20 at noon.

These interesting and informative discussions are held at Blue Ridge Community & Technical College at the Pines Opportunity Center in Berkeley Springs, and continue monthly on a variety of topics.  The Blue Ridge Culinary Department will supply a light lunch for this free one-hour seminar.

June’s guest speaker is Kay Ogilvie, Cybersecurity Program Coordinator and Instructor for BRCTC, on the subject of Avoiding Data Hacking for Small Businesses.

Kay Ogilvie has recently overseen the re-designation of the Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College. This nine-month project addresses the critical shortage of professionals with cybersecurity skills, highlights the importance of higher education as a solution to defending America’s cyberspace, and is established by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

Only approximately 400 colleges and universities, nationwide, have earned this honor. Blue Ridge is the only community college in the state of West Virginia to be designated as a Center of Cyber Excellence.

All are welcome; attendees do not have to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce to participate.  RSVP at to reserve a spot and ensure that there is lunch available for everyone.
