About the Webinar: Cyber security has become a catch-all phrase. What does it really mean, and what are the critical security threats and attack vectors that organizations must understand in order to protect their most important assets? This webinar will provide a current state report of cyber threat categories, attack vectors, and vulnerabilities, and will then identify steps organizations can immediately take to protect themselves, their assets, their customers, and ultimately their bottom line from the threats.

Attendees shall learn to answer the following questions:

 What is Cyber Security?

 What are the Cyber Security risks/threats?

 What polices, processes, and technology designs need to be implemented to address Cyber Security risks?

 What types of monitoring are required to reduce Cyber Security risks?

 What are the tangible and intangible costs related to Cyber Security risk mitigation?
