Today’s cyber criminals have shown how sophisticated they can be with attacks on some of the most prominent U.S. businesses and governmental agencies. According to Interpol, these opportunistic criminals are aided by the speed, convenience, anonymity of the Internet.

Many executives rely on their IT departments to protect against cyber attacks, but the risk has evolved to one that poses a major strategic risk to the growth and prosperity of their business. The risks include:

  • Access to customer records, trade secrets, employee records, and company financial information
  • Liability for a cyber attack and the cost to remedy it up could be huge sums of money
  • Fall-out from a damaged reputation

After spending 18 years as a governmental computer crime investigator with the FBI’s Cyber Crimes task Force, Michael Bazzell will update business leaders on recent trends in online fraud, computer intrusion, and ways that suspects steal valuable data from your company. The presentation includes the details of how hackers commit their crimes, emerging threats to every business and how businesses can protect themselves.

“If you are the leader of a business, you should know how strong your company’s defenses are, you should know if there are response plans in place in case a significant security breach occurs, and you should be getting regular reports on cyber security threats and what your company is doing to respond to those threats.”
– US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew
