April 22, 2015 @ 8:00 AM (EST) - 11:00 AM (EST)
Gannett/USA TODAY Corporate Headquarters
Cybercrime is on the rise (global losses are estimated at $500 billion per year) as is the amount of sensitive electronic information that we all store.
Every day we read about large, well known corporations being hacked. The average data breach costs $3.5 million – a huge monetary and time cost for any organization. Cyber threats are becoming more sophisticated, and the harm to your organization could be devastating. Fortunately, more and more businesses are putting cyber security at the top of the priorities list. Staying informed about the risks, the potential harm, and the methods for managing those risks are key to your organization’s success.
- Does your IT staff have a strategy in place to protect sensitive client and employee information against hacking, carelessness and theft?
- What happens if a hacker steals your employee PII or PHI?
- What is your legal and insurance exposure when your data protection measures are not enough?
- What is your company’s liability and how much will it cost?
In our upcoming seminar we will explore these questions by bringing together a distinguished panel of Cybersecurity, Legal, Insurance and Audit experts to explore the impact of a data breach. They will be discussing data breaches in the news, effective cyber defense strategies, the legal and financial implications of a breach, and the cyber insurance protections necessary for companies
