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.

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
