ONLINE DANGER - how to protect yourself and be aware of online threats.

  • Every company is at risk of online hacking. These hacks can cost you a large sum of money to holding you hostage, so your ability to both protect and react to hacking could be the thing that saves you
  • You need to understand how it happens so that you can create a corporate system to protect yourself.
  • You need to make sure that you hold your employees accountable to the system, so they don’t put you and your company at risk.

 

CYBER CULTURE - how to create a culture of security without sacrificing company culture.

  • You need to create a companywide mantra of how you deal with security issues, both general and online
  • When you create this system, it can feel like big brother to employees--so how to mitigate that feeling and make them feel safe and private is important
  • There is a careful balance needed between culture and security and you need to find your company sweet spot

 


CYBER DEFENSE SYSTEMS - how to create a foundational defense system that can be built upon and scaled
.

  • Corporate security is both essential for inhouse as well as the safety from 3rd parties violating the integrity of your data
  • The only way to protect your organization is by creating a foundational system and not by plugging the dam with your fingers as issues arise


ONE CLICK IS ALL IT TAKES
- The threat is real. It is not a matter of if you are going to be a target, but when. Every organization has 2 options: 1) ignore the problem, wait until you are hacked, and react; 2) be proactive, minimize the exposure, and turn potential major risks until minor incidents. Every company is at risk for online hacking and these hacks can cost you a large sum of money, hold you hostage and have a reputational impact on an organization. Cybersecurity is not hard if an organization and the individual in the organization follow core principles. Therefore, it is critical to understand how attacks happen, so a robust method of cyber defense can be built. It is also important to make sure that you hold your employees accountable for their actions and do not inadvertently put your company at risk. In this engaging talk, the audience will learn:

  • The real threats that organizations face
  • How adversaries work and operate
  • Methods to defend against attacks
  • Ways to minimize the cost and exposure from an attack
