How to establish a cyber security readiness program

Vlog broadcast of recent Etactics webinar

Former FBI Director James Comey stated, "Cyber threats are too fast, too big, and too widespread for any of us to address them alone."

Each day, more users store confidential data in the cloud. According to Gartner, Inc., the world's leading research and advisory company, the world will store 50 times the amount of confidential data in 2020 than they do now. This increase in usage has lead to an increase in cybercrime, which is expected to cost $6 trillion in damages by 2021.

How can you prevent your organization from being a potential victim of cybercrime?

Etactics, ABA Insurance Services, and Risk Compliance Group teamed up to present "How to Establish a Cyber Security Readiness Program". 

Originally broadcast on Wednesday, August 23,  Mark Madar of Risk Compliance Group and Josh Holden of ABA Insurance Services discussed what the current cyber security environment looks like and recommended how organizations can implement a cybersecurity readiness program that aligns with regulatory and industry standards.
