If you use technology in your day to day operations (and who doesn't), join us on the morning of Wednesday, June 8th for our second of four events on mitigating the risks of business impacts through cybersecurity.

Part two of the series will focus on risk assessment, both initial and ongoing.  A hand selected subject matter expert will lead our session with a broad overview on assessments that will benefit both junior and senior level IT professionals.  Selected panelists will share real life scenarios on the successes and challenges they have faced in preparing for and conducting risk assessments for their business.

Questions to be answered during this session:

  • What are the impacts to your business and your role specifically if there is a security breach?  
  • Is it lost revenue, lost brand equity, lost job, etc?
  • What is the first step in getting a risk assessment?
  • What are the best tools in conducting self / internal assessments?
  • When assessing risk, which threats are higher in the risk hierarchy - internal or external?
  • How does BYOD impact your risk assessment planning/monitoring?
