Accounts of lessons learned by those experiencing a modern cyber incident

Join the Schneider Downs cybersecurity team as they share insights from countless strategic discussions with business and technology leaders attempting to navigate the shifting landscape of modern cybersecurity. Many organizations still lack a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity risks and with so many technical variables and threats, their cybersecurity strategy could find itself relying on thought processes that are outdated or based on false assumptions.

From a penetration tester’s perspective; these strategic mistakes are often the root cause of significant compromises. During this presentation, we will discuss several critical misconceptions and overlooked risks that may be lurking within your organization’s cybersecurity strategy and then review practical approaches to help reach an effective cybersecurity posture.
