Combating Cyber Threats

Join us as Eric Wright and Joseph Ruscak address practices and strategies you need to apply throughout your organization to safeguard it from attacks, including development of a well-defined incident response plan, the addition of a cyber-insurance policy and how to handle the proliferation of data and smart devices in your company.
