Protecting Your Data in 2020

Monday, June 1  |  8:00am – 9:00am

2019 was another record year for the Cyber Criminals. Almost every week there was another data breach in the news. What did all of these organizations have in common? They all spent a lot of money on information security products and consulting services focusing on compliance: PCI, HIPPA, SOX, etc. It seems the more money spent on products and services the more the breaches occur. Something isn't right.

Retired FBI Special Agent Scott Augenbaum will demonstrate how throwing large bags of money on information security isn't the right answer. He will provide you with an honest assessment of the current state of information security and explain why the victimization continues as well as steps to improve your security strategy without spending money. Expect to learn: The commonalities that existed in all the data breaches; Why in many cases, companies were impacted even though they had the best technology in place; and Why all the major breaches had intrusion response plans but were not prepared.
