2019 Webinar: Cybersecurity Webinar for Business Leaders

Thursday, October 31, 2019 from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

PRESENTED BY WIPFLI

Today's business environment requires senior executives and business owners to think strategically about the cyber challenges facing their businesses.  

Cyber-attacks are continuing to evolve at a record pace.  Cloud computing, mobile devices, IoT and other newer technologies and regulatory requirements are changing security requirements.  Hackers continue to be a concern as their strategies become more sophisticated. 

With all this in mind, strategies that safeguarded your company a few years ago, may not safeguard your business today.  As majority data breaches continue to make the headlines and the results of those breaches compromise client data and impact companies' bottom lines, it is vital that business owners and business leaders stay on top of the latest Cybersecurity developments and get involved in Cybersecurity discussions today to ensure the success of their companies tomorrow.

Please join us for this webinar where speakers from Wipfli and Marsh & McLennan Agency will share:

  • best practices for data breach response
  • risk management techniques
  • strategies to protect your business
  • the threat landscape
  • top "hacker-attack techniques"
