Event description

Description

Small & medium-sized organizations all have valuable data, which makes them prime targets for cyber criminals . However, these organizations (small businesses, non-profits, local governments, schools, etc.) are often under-resourced when it comes to protecting their sensitive assets. The National Cyber Security Alliance has developed a free hands-on half-day workshop to help organizations:

Identify which business assets others want
• Protect those assets
Detect when something has gone wrong
• Respond quickly and appropriately with an action plan
Recover after a breach

AGENDA:

12:00PM-1:00PM: Registration

1:00PM-2:00PM: Fireside chat with local and national experts

2:00PM-4:00PM: Tabletop workshop where attendees will define what cybersecurity is, identify common misconceptions, learn "quick wins" to put into action now, and begin developing their own strategy for minimizing cybersecurity threats.

This workshop is not designed for cybersecurity experts. This workshop is designed for individuals with little to no cybersecurity expertise, but everyone is welcome to attend.

Special Guests Include:

  • Eileen Joyce, Lead Economic Development Specialist, U.S. Small Business Administration

  • Cindy Liebes, Director, SE Region, Federal Trade Commission,

  • Amalia Mercedes Restucha-Klem, Assistant Attorney General, Public Protection Section, North Carolina Department of Justice

  • Stephen Kennen, President, Proactive IT

This workshop is a kick-off to National Cybersecurity Awareness Month--observed throughout the month of October.

This workshop is funded in party by a cooperative agreement with the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
