Businesses are now well-defined targets for criminals who seek to steal personal data and intellectual property or hold it ransom until you pay. Why are companies formerly thought to be "safe" from attacks a new found target? Because it pays millions in dollars or bitcoins. Your business is now the prime target of these criminals. You are a target because small and mid-sized businesses are focused on survival and notoriously weak and sloppy when it comes to security planning, defense and response. The protection of your valuable data, intellectual property, client information and employee records is vitally important. The hacks, malware and ransom techniques are growing more dangerous and sophisticated every day. Will you be the next victim or will you fight back? We will show you how to fight back!
Attendees will leave with actionable information on how to plan for, identify and respond to a data breach.
We only have seating for 12 people, this event will fill up fast.
