Data breaches and security vulnerabilities seem to be common occurrences in our personal and professional lives. Reports about the mishandling of our data by social media giants, credit bureaus, and others are more and more frequent.

Is it possible to protect yourself from incidents like these? The answer is YES.

In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals you need to understand today’s security challenges and the cyber-attack landscape and how to minimize your security risk. You will gain key insights and practical tips on how to protect your organization – and yourself – from technology security threats. You will learn the most common attacks organizations face and leading practices on how to protect yourself from compromise.
