    Presentation by the Daniel Eliot, Director of Education & Strategic Initiatives

    “Are you as prepared as you think you are?” – Bridging the disconnect between C-Level and IT Staff.

    Description: Organizations cannot simply rely upon technology to secure their sensitive assets. Cybersecurity is best approached with a mix of employee training, clear and accepted policies and procedures, and implementation of current technologies. With that in mind, cyber-securing an organization is not just the job of the IT staff. So who is responsible? Everyone. This workshop, facilitated by the National Cyber Security Alliance’s Director of Education & Strategic Initiatives, will provide attendees with an overview of common cybersecurity misconceptions, operational suggestions for enhancing security, “quick wins” to put into action, and free resources organizations can integrate into their training and awareness programs.


    -Attendees will be able to identify and counter small business cybersecurity misconceptions.

    -Attendees will be able to describe the 5 components of a cyber risk strategy: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover.

    -Attendees will know how to access free resources they can integrate into awareness programs.

    -Attendees will learn free or low-cost “quick wins” they can immediately put into action to protect their organization.
