This is a solid event and for me, the reason for that is because it focuses on an underserved market: the SME space. We’re very glad that the organizers sent us this event and wish them all the best of luck with it.

Cyberattacks have become a persistent and permanent threat to organizations across all sectors. The question companies are facing is not if a cyberattack will happen, but when. The difference between the losers and winners in a cyberattack is how effectively the organization handles the response. The degree of loss and reputational damage (impact on brand value and customer loyalty) from a major cyberattack can be severe and irrevocable. Therefore, we need to ask: “Are we sufficiently prepared to respond to a cyberattack?”
How much do you need to know to have an intelligent conversation about Cybersecurity? Your personal information, potential threats, and your options to address those threats? The answer is surprisingly fluid, as it is with any fast‐changing field. How much do you need to know about medicine to have a meaningful conversation with your doctor about your health? How much do you need to know about the law to understand and engage with your attorney? How much do you need to know about cars to talk to your mechanic?
For example, you may not know precisely how your engine works, but you know what an engine is. Not so much with Cybersecurity. Obviously, all businesses are using IT for daily tasks, however, a large percentage of companies lack a true understanding of the Cybersecurity Landscape.
Professionals are invited to join the panel of national cyber experts as they discuss and share ways to fight back!
