The importance of cyber security cannot be understated. With famous corporate hacks, such as the Target and Home Depot, and ransomware attacks becoming more commonplace; the need for a cyber security plan is necessary for every company, big and small. At our meet ups, we will dig deep and teach companies the appropriate level of security for the size of their company. For startups, protecting their product is the only way bigger companies will invest in the startup. For medium sized firms, purchasing appropriately sized cyber security services will protect the firm, without draining the firm’s profits. Join us to learn about the trends in cyber crimes and the protections available for your company.
In our inaugural cyber security meet up, Cyber Exec, Jeffery Haupt, will discuss what to look for when hiring your CISO and how to prevent overspending and overkill in cyber security. Jeffery will explain the nuances of hiring for cyber security, the trust involved, and why it is important to use outside help in recruiting this position.
After Jeffery’s presentation, we will have a Q&A for those attending and will discuss the future direction of this cyber security meet up.
FinTank‘s CyberSecurity Meetup brings together those with experience in the field and those that want to become a part of it. A wide range of topics are discussed from how to prevent breaches to what to do once they have been found in a system. The format is interactive with a focus on learning.
