Event description

Description

Think cybercrime is just about stealing money and personal data? That’s only the tip of the iceberg. There’s much more at stake, from industrial espionage to activist attacks to outright terrorism—and your company is probably a target.

But cyberterrorism isn’t really a technology problemit’s a people problem. And communication can play a pivotal role in helping protect our companies.

In this compelling session, you’ll learn about the real challenges and how to address them, including:

  • Eight ways cybercrime could destroy your organization. (Can you name them?)
  • Why we communicators need to take a leadership role. (It’s not just IT’s job!)
  • Why crisis planning is good, but a proactive comms culture is even better.

We'll show you some examples of innovative and highly effective programs that other communicators developed to build their employees awareness. So when you leave this session, you’ll know where to begin, and you’ll have a creative springboard for what you can do in your organization to minimize the risk and effects of cybercrime.
