Data breaches are costly and create chaos for organizations and their customers. So how do you protect your organization from a data breach? How do recognize a breach? How do you respond to a breach?

This program will focus on intrusions, vulnerabilities and protection for contractors, small businesses, government and non-profit entities. We will discuss insider threats, email challenges, social networking and virus/malware as well as ransomware challenges to organizations.

During the second half of the day, we will do some simulation/role playing so you have a better understanding of the components of a breach and the impact a breach has on your organization, customers, vendors and suppliers.

See detailed agenda here.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this course, you will:
  • Develop a best practice strategy for breach prevention and reaction
  • Create an action plan before a breach happens
  • Determine guidelines and communication channels should a breach occur
  • Identify stakeholders, customers, suppliers and all others who may have been impacted by a breach
