Here is your opportunity to ask questions and get answers about your Cyber Security. A panel of experts from several disciplines will be available to provide guidance.

We may be accustomed to hearing about cyber-attacks on large firms such as Target, Yahoo and even the federal government. However, data breaches and attacks are not just about the large organizations. Any business of any size can be at risk, but it can be daunting to know the most important steps to take. The Breach Education Alliance can help.
Cyber criminals are everywhere. Business owners can either do nothing and hope for the best, or prepare their organizations properly.  The Breach Education Alliance is a group of experts in legal protection and compliance, forensic information security, insurance, reputation management and messaging, and IT infrastructure. They provide practical guidance on steps organizations should take to avoid, minimize, or respond to cyber threats and information security vulnerabilities.  These subject matter experts share their expertise as speakers to trade groups, business associations and others who feel unprepared to respond to cyber-attacks.

They help you answer the following questions:

What are your legal requirements duties to protect sensitive business or personal information?

How do you protect yourself in agreements with vendors and others? What type of government enforcement should you know about?

What should you insist be included in your insurance policy? Are you familiar with exclusions and liability limits that exclude payments involving data breaches or other cyber intrusions? What precautions do you need to take to support coverage?

Do you have proper backup files and a plan for disaster recovery?  Is your firewall in-place and updated with the latest threat prevention updates?

When an attack occurs what will you say to your stakeholders, the public and clients? How much will an attack damage your reputation?
