WORKSHOP: PROTECTING YOUR COMPANY AND ITS DATA
The recent series of global ransomware attacks have reminded all corporate leaders of the growing importance of protecting your IP, your data and your network. Preventing your IP and critical data from theft, damage, or ransom helps you maintain your bottom line. When your systems are compromised, the longer you wait to identify your important data and all your network’s access points where a hacker could have entered, the more it will cost you. The costs are your wasted time, your unsupported clients and your unrealized revenue. It costs more to remediate a hacked system then it does to prevent the hack in the first place.
In this workshop – presented for the non-technical business leader – you will learn how to identify the important information to protect and how to protect it. You will understand how pivotal your employees can be to prevent an attack and how to make them your strongest link. We will help you understand the key components needed to defend your high value data and information systems from cyber-attacks and insider threats. We will help you select and implement methods and techniques to prevent your assets from compromise.
When the workshop is complete, you will understand your data priorities and how you can secure your data and the systems that are used to access and store that information.
