Cyber Security in 2020 and Beyond
Thursday, March 19th, 2020, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Suffolk University, Sargent Hall, 5th Floor Commons 120 Tremont Street Boston
While massive malware attacks make headlines, more often than not, the true culprit of cyber security events is already sitting in your inbox.
Business emails that look like messages from your C-Suite, unpaid invoices from forgotten vendors, account verification requests, and more, are often the most common cause of security compromises. And while these methods are relatively ‘low tech,’ a little bit of social engineering can go a long way to a clicked link and a security incident.
So how can we be good stewards of our corporate data and network, without slowing down our productivity? We’ve got a few ideas.
Join Boston Women in Finance on March 19, 2020, for "Cyber Security in 2020 and Beyond,” where our guest speaker, SA Amy Diamond, Federal Bureau of Investigations, will share:
- An overview of today’s cybersecurity landscape, and the cost of a data breach
- The progressing sophistication of social engineering in breach attempts
- The common signs of a breach attempt, and how you can avoid them
- Best practices that you can implement today to be a good steward of your corporate data and network
- What to do if you think you’ve been breached
Our program will be hosted at Sargent Hall at Suffolk University. Registration and networking will be hosted from 11:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., and our program will run from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
