Description

It’s no surprise that cyber attacks bring about a whole myriad of risks for an organization. From concerns about the “dark web”, dealing with cyber-criminals who target large corporations to steal customer and employee info, to ransomware and data regulation, this session explores how GCs and CIOs are working together to prevent their companies from becoming the next target of a high-profile breach.
