Session Description

TWhy should we be concerned with protecting information?  Information is the new currency of business.  We have instant accessibility across international, corporate and organizational boundaries.  Along with these communication advantages comes the threat of cyber modification, theft and destruction.  The challenge we face regarding cyber security is that protection against these threats will require both the right technology and the right public policy.  Although data privacy is currently a driver behind regulation, our dependency on the Internet has outgrown the security measures.  We will address why we should be concerned with cyber security, steps to evaluate your company's cyber security risk level, how to take preventive measures, what are emerging cyber security trends, threats and roadblocks.
