Event Details

October 2012 marks the ninth annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). Join industry leader Plus Consulting for a morning of discussion, presentations, and strategies for ensuring your company is prepared. John Hudson, former Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) for University of Pittsburgh, and now a member of the Plus team, will be leading the event. 

Organizations have to face up to the prospect that at some point in time they will face a cyber-attack from a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) to cyber criminals targeting critical data. The question many organizations find difficult to answer is “can we cope?” – How will an extended network outage impact our operation? Have they really got our data – how do we really know?

Organizations have spent the first years of the new millennium producing feature rich applications and finding new ways to use data to drive customer decisions, drive down costs or collaborate in a global economy. At the same time criminal organizations and state-sponsored entities have been concentrating on exploiting this readily available data. Credit card data can be sold for as little as $20.00 for a Gold Card, Social Security numbers for less. Corporate intellectual Property can be sold on and turned into product within a business quarter.

Plus Consulting is a Pittsburgh-based IT strategy and consulting firm, with extensive experience delivering solutions that help our clients keep their information safe and secure. Find out more about us on our recently redesigned website!
