IT Wizards

Cybersecurity for SMB: Where to start?

My Fellow IT Wizards,

As we look back on 2016, it is fairly obvious that the major IT concern last year was computer security. Firewall. Antivirus. Phishing. Spam. Hackers. Breaches. These are just some of popular cybersecurity buzzwords thrown around by the media on a daily basis. With all the chatter—and also considering the pace of technology today—how can organizations keep up or know how to protect themselves and their customers effectively? Josh Feinblum, vice president of Information Security at Rapid7, will talk through what today’s threat landscape looks like, including the anatomy of a threat, and the top five things business leaders need to know to keep their small and medium sized businesses safe. Josh will also provide practical guidance for getting started and assessing the current state of security programs, so IT leaders can prioritize the most impactful actions.

Josh is deeply involved in the security community, with a lifelong passion in the space that culminates in more than eleven years of information security experience, including starting many diverse security and privacy programs nationwide.

To ensure that we order enough food, please RSVP by 9:00 AM on February 8, 2017.
Hope to see you all there!
