Program description

Cyber Security: How to stay abreast of the latest threats in cyber warfare


Cyber threats are more sophisticated and frequent, do you know what your organization should be doing to mitigate and manage risk?


Internet-based attacks on US corporations accomplish varied objectives, such as disrupting computer information networks; gaining unauthorized access to systems; realizing economic incentives by accessing sensitive financial information and payment systems; and stealing critical intellectual property.


These attacks are launched by individuals, organizations, and states. Cyber terrorism has an adverse effect on corporate profits, public confidence, stock markets, economic/service sectors, and other national critical infrastructures.


So how can CFOs contend with these threats? Join us for ‘Cyber Security: How to stay abreast of the latest threats in cyber warfare’ on Wednesday, March 18th.
