Shannon Tankersley

It's Cyber Security Month at JPtheGeek

Event Description:

Join Shannon and JPtheGeek for a Halloween Campfire Tales of the Dark Web.

It is one of those things – you want to know…but you don’t want to know. Is your information currently on the Dark Web? What does this mean to you, and how do you protect yourself and your business? As Cyber Criminals continue to increase their ways of getting into computers, business owners need to keep up their defenses. Many small businesses feel that they are too small to be attacked. Unfortunately, you are not too small to be attacked – you are just too small to make the news. Many cybercriminals are going after small to medium-sized businesses because they have lower defenses and, therefore, are easier to get into. 60% of small and medium-sized businesses go under within six months of a breach. Learn some of the basics of how to protect yourself and your team against Cyber Criminals.


Shannon's Bio:

Shannon’s background is in marketing and advertising; however, her time at JPtheGeek has helped her to understand the need for increased security at companies. Having experienced it herself with her Facebook page being breached and no longer accessible to her – she has learned that this is just one small area and what bigger issues this could lead to for her and her family.

The History 


Top Floor Women began several years ago when Mindi Epstein had the vision to unite women on the south side of Indianapolis to network and develop personally and professionally.  Since Mindi was an established business owner in Franklin, IN, she collaborated with the owners of "The Elevator" on the town square in Franklin, IN, on their TOP FLOOR.  Top Floor Women became a popular monthly networking event bringing women from central Indiana to meet, share and connect.  Before COVID-19, often, there was standing room only in this dedicated space.   As the group grew, Mindi moved the location to the Hillview County Club in Franklin and the Barn at Bay Horse.  During this last move in 2021, during COVID restrictions, Mindi's life also changed.  She was traveling for work and relocated her home to the north side of Indianapolis.  These two factors made it difficult to continue serving the Southside community,  

Mindi reached out to Angie Redmon, President of stiveHR, and Melahni Ake, Founder and President of Everyday Leaders, to continue the momentum to serve women in our community.
