Cyber Security

Cyber security is a concern for all organizations and the failure to be prepared opens the door to significant risks. Unlike other historically known and quantified risks, however, cyber threats are constantly changing and evolving, requiring significant efforts to stay one step ahead. Ryan Spelman, Program Executive with the Center for Internet Security, will present on the threat landscape, how it can and will impact those organizations that are not prepared, and what steps can be taken to help minimize risk.
