Governments and businesses large and small are continuously being “hacked” and invaded by malicious or mischievous intruders via technology.  Concurrently, computing models like the Cloud gain wider acceptance and potentially increase points of vulnerability. What would happen if your business was hacked?  What would be the impact to your customer, suppliers, and overall reputation?  As business leaders, we continually ask what is our best path forward in the complicated area of technical risk.  Are we safer or more at risk using the Cloud versus internal IT?  What concerns should we have?  How do we comply with privacy regulations?  Regardless of your company’s size, IT environment, or future plans, you must be prepared to encounter and manage potentially debilitating technology risks.  Come learn about the risks facing your company from a panel of cyber security experts.  We’ll explore considerations and controls related to each, and identify actions you can take to improve your security and mitigate risk.
