Getting Smart about Cybersecurity

Most firms have addressed cybersecurity in one aspect or another, thinking a few access controls and anti-virus programs are the silver bullet. However very few firms have a holistic cyber program in place, often lacking in high-risk areas while having an excess of controls in others, wasting time and resources that should be spent elsewhere. By taking a step back and examining a cyber program, these risk areas can be properly mitigated, reducing data loss, reputation, downtime and monetary risks.

Topics covered in this CCAST include:

  • Creating an effective cybersecurity program
  • Methods of testing and improving controls
  • Drafting policies and procedures
  • Common areas of deficiency
  • Answers to your cyber risk questions
