Webinar: Protecting Your Small Business in a Digital World

Small businesses are attractive targets for cyber-attacks because they have information that cybercriminals want, and typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses. This webinar will highlight these topics to frame your strategies in helping protect your assets from ever-evolving cyber threats.

Webinar: How the Employee Retention Credit Can Help Your Business

Designed to help businesses impacted by the pandemic, learn how the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) can provide refundable tax relief to your business. Many businesses mistakenly believe they are not eligible for the ERC, and CPB wants to make sure you are not leaving money on the table. In this webinar, our featured speakers will highlight what the ERC is and the impact of the credit, who qualifies for the ERC and examples, the ERC Calculator created by EY, and more!
