Cybersecurity & Privacy Committee Event

Presented by the Cybersecurity and Privacy Committee

September 13, 2012

How to Make Cybersecurity Part of an Organization's DNA

Companies spend millions of dollars on cybersecurity technology but often the bad guys avoid the firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other perimeter protections by using employees as their unwitting accomplices. Bad guys hack employee passwords, they send employees email attachments that contain malicious payloads and they social engineer access to the corporate network via the help desk, etc.

This NVTC Cybersecurity and Privacy Committee program will address the role of humans (vs. technology) in protecting citizens, corporations, employees and organizational data.
