3:30pm-5:30pm Tuesday June 2, 2015 at the InnovationPavilion 9200 E Mineral Ave Centennial Colorado
Our esteemed Cyber Security Panel will discussing issues faced by most small businesses with 5-50 or more employees that have multiple devices, lack an IT staff, especially small businesses in the following high risk industries:
Even companies who do not process credit cards or collect PII are exposed when it comes to employee data and the very real threat of corporate espionage with hackers hired to steal internal company information, documents, blueprints when they are bidding for business.
We will discuss some of the questions you should be asking and providing valuable information to the business community:
- Do you know what information you have that others may want?
- Are you in a high risk industry (medical, healthcare, legal, financial)?
- Are you subject to HIPPA or HITECH?
- Where are the threats coming from and who are the players looking to steal your data?
- Are your employees proactive and trained to prevent an attack by ongoing practices implemented by management?
- Would you know if you were being attacked and if your business assets have been compromised?
- Has your system been tested for vulnerabilities?
- Is your data encrypted in transit, at rest and how is your email transmitted?
- Do you use a cloud provider/vendor to host your website? Do you store records in the cloud?
- Do you use a third party credit card processing service? If so, a third party likely has access to personal data about your customers, employees, or other valuable company information. Moreover, they may have sent your information further downstream to their own service providers.
- Do you have a plan to react to a cyber-attack and minimize the harm caused?
- Do you know the cost of a breach (notification costs, forensics, reputation management, regulatory fines, and ransom and legal fees)?
- Do you have coverage to protect your business in the case of a breach and subsequent lawsuit?
- How do high profile breaches affect your business and employees (Target, Anthem, etc)
