Cybersecurity-Protecting Your Information-Managing Your Risks

Cybersecurity is one of the biggest challenges facing organizations today. Current headlines continually report data breaches that can destroy reputations, carry the risk of significant financial penalties and have significant recovery costs. Despite the risks, many organizations have failed to implement the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards required to protect their information.

A “one size fits all” approach does not work for cybersecurity. Individualized plans must be developed and then continually audited for compliance to ensure risks are mitigated and information is protected.

We will outline how to safeguard your information and manage your risks by exploring actual breaches. Best practices for policies and procedures along with security incident response plans will be discussed with a focus on operational issues.
