Don’t Fall Victim to a Cyberattack or Data Security Breach!

In the current environment of data breaches and cyberattacks, no organization, however large or small, is immune, so all need to be prepared with an incident response plan. Additionally, board directors are being held liable under various state privacy acts for not taking responsibility for the protection of all the data they hold.

Join Meetings Today and TrustBridge, which has joined forces with international law firm Womble Bond Dickinson, for this free one-hour webinar that will provide real-world examples of what can go wrong, what has worked well, what remains uncertain when dealing with the inevitable data breach or security incident, and steps to take to mitigate risk.

This panel of industry leaders, cyber experts and legal professionals will step through a cyber incident response simulation—a scenario developed in association with the International Association for Risk and Crisis Communications—and review the actions taken within the simulation to give real-time perspectives from the viewpoint of forensic investigation and mitigation, legal, cyber insurance and law enforcement considerations.

Recent high-profile data breach cases from major hotel companies only serve to reinforce the message to be aware and be prepared! In the U.S., a data breach costs on average $9.44 million per incident and cybercrime is predicted to cost $8 trillion in 2023—and this does not reflect the reputational cost, lost business and even collapse a catastrophic data breach could cause.

Speakers and panel members:

  • Penny Heyes, COO, The TrustBridge (moderator)
  • Tara N. Cho, CIPP/US, CIPP/E, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson (US) LLP
  • Bill Mew, Associate Consultant Cyber, The TrustBridge
  • David Clarke, FBCS, Chief Technology Officer, The Trust Bridge 
  • Hayden McKaskle, North America Sales Manager, Law Firm Channel, Palo Alto Networks / Unit 4

By participating in this webinar, attendees will learn the following:

  • Types of cyberattacks and data security breaches to be aware of 
  • How to mitigate a security breach 
  • What to do if your organization falls victim
  • Additional resources to help protect your organization

Earn CEUs: The Events Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Financial Management Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.

Course approved for CMP credit through EIC.
