You can register here.

    Title: We're under attack! Is our data safe?

    Description: The session will cover a real-life attack on a major corporation and the resulting mega-breach where personally identifiable information (PII) for nearly half of the U.S. population was compromised. The presentation will cover:
    1) Overview of the corporate profile and business of the organization in question.  2) The applicability of the adage: Prevention is better than cure? Reactive vs Proactive approaches and their effectiveness.  3) Consequences and impact of a breach in general and in the context of Digital Transformation. Is it enough to be compliant with standards such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) or other relevant standards?  4) What options do organizations have and how do they address this challenge? Can organizations ever become "breach-proof"?

    Date: March 25, 2021
    Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET


    1) The mechanics and anatomy of a data breach.

    2) The impact and how to avert or respond to an attack/breach.
