The 21st century has created an ever increasing and innovative society. Technology has made leaps and bounds, and will continue to do so moving forward. However, with technological inventions increasing, the opportunity for cyber threats also grows. Many organizations developing new tech remain unaware of the extent of damages that can be caused by a cyber attack. Some of these disruptions can easily be avoided by taking the time to have the right discussions around cyber security within an organization. By understanding what the attackers are after and how organizations are exposed, companies can begin to mitigate some of the risk they face from these threat actors.

Please join us for a presentation and discussion around cybersecurity threats, their effects, and what organizations can do to become more cyber secure as we move forward in the 21st century.
