CYBERSECURITY - IF THE ADAGE "DATA IS CURRENCY" IS TRUE, HOW DO WE MAKE SURE OUR ENTITY'S "MONEY" IS SAFE?

DECEMBER 13, 2022

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM (ET)

3 Contact Hours

Our entity's data is becoming more and more valuable, yet we are moving away from on-premises software solutions and opting to entrust the safeguarding of our most valuable asset to contractors and third-parties. Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly prevalent, and making headlines daily. How do we determine whether our data will be safe, and what steps can we take to address the consequences of a cyber attack on our data? 

  • Assessing whether a potential Contractor meets our security standards by discussing different methods of assessment, including questionnaires, surveys, and using third-party solutions. 
  • Cyberliability insurance: what it is, the current state of the market, and how to determine when we need it and how much we need.
