Announcing a Secure The Village Webinar on Cybersecurity (without boiling the ocean)

Date and Time: March 11, 2021 (10-11am PT)

Description: Organizations struggle with many cybersecurity issues demanding attention, time and money. These issues include managing information security risk, the ever-changing landscape of threats and the cost of safeguards. An effective solution is to approach cybersecurity as a step-by-step journey rather than a destination.

Some key takeaways will include:

  • What to consider in a cybersecurity strategy
  • How to build a cybersecurity program based on continuous improvement
