In 1887 when the Salt Lake Chamber began, the city was still in many ways a dusty frontier town.

Much had happened since the pioneers first drove their wagons into the valley 40 years earlier, but Salt Lake needed a cohesive business community.

The Chamber helped pave the way as those early businesses joined forces to provide a dynamic and thriving community. They also fostered service opportunities to make life better for local residents.

Looking back on the history of Salt Lake, every major event and accomplishment has felt the influence of the Chamber.

As we look ahead to the decades to come, the Salt Lake Chamber will be central to the business community continuing to be innovative, vibrant and thriving.

All too often, we see a pattern of negligence in terms of our scrutiny towards cybersecurity.

It’s easy to brush off, postpone, or even turn a cold shoulder, but Utah’s business community must recognize that cybersecurity is a risk that affects all organizations from Fortune 500s to small street corner businesses.

Cyber incidents are inevitable. Recognizing this, the Salt Lake Chamber has taken an active role in educating the business community on the shared responsibility of cybersecurity, and is now an official partner of the STOP.THINK.CONNECT. – The global online safety awareness campaign that aims to increase awareness and provide solutions for cybersecurity.

And, during National Cybersecurity  Awareness Month, the Chamber will be hosting Cybersecurity Solutions | A Discussion on cybersecurity’s impact on your business, October 27th.
