After a tumultuous year of cyber-attacks and data security failures, cybersecurity has become a great concern for organizations in nearly every industry. Cyber-attacks not only effect consumers and the economy, but also pose significant risk to national security.
Each subsequent cyber-attack has demonstrated the sophistication of cyber-criminals and as such, organizations of all industries and sizes must proactively take steps to ensure that personal data, intellectual property, and other proprietary information is safe within their organization and their extended data supply chains.
This webinar covers the privacy and cybersecurity issues faced by most global organizations, and explain steps that can be taken to reduce corporate risk arising from these issues.
