Technological advancements and the explosion of the internet has produced a Renaissance era of innovation, information sharing, data collection and systems integration. However, the increased interconnectivity of our organizations has also generated unique and unexpected challenges related to cyber security and safeguarding our private information.

Regardless of your industry or size, today’s business leaders benefit from some familiarity with the current threats and challenges that exist within the online landscape. A workshop designed for both the non-technical and technical, participants will be introduced to a number of modern-day cyber security threats, and how intruders use non-traditional and unexpected vulnerabilities to access core network functions and personal information.

This workshop will begin by illustrating the potential exposure that integrated network systems can create if not properly monitored. We will then transition into discussing tactics and actions we can take as organizations to help strengthen our cyber security posture, ranging from technology solutions to non-technology based suggestions, including incident preparedness, understanding social engineering and data-loss prevention techniques. Finally, the workshop will wrap up with a look to the future toward some of the more interesting cyber security concerns on the horizon, including exposure to hacking techniques, the role of the Dark Web and initial discussions on a plan of action if your organization experiences a data breach or loss of secure information.
