What You Will Learn
Cybersecurity and data privacy are two areas that are high on the agendas of business owners and professionals. Recent breaches have occurred as a result of human failure rather than technology failure because today’s advanced persistent threats target people, not systems. There is a strategic gap between security risks and security solutions. Regardless of company size, security breaches result in reputational damage and material business disruption. Developing and managing an effective cybersecurity program is becoming a necessity in today’s internet-driven economy.
This session will cover right-now solutions, how to protect the data of your company, as well as your professional reputation.
Attendees will hear about the effectiveness of implementing penetration tests and vulnerability assessments. They will understand how conducting remote tests of the perimeter of their IT environment and assessing other critical access points including VPNs and third-party interfaces to “trusted” servicers or business partners can help prevent a cyber incident.
