This year was a roller coaster ride of threats, hacks, and breaches. One after another, companies came out with news of their networks and client data being compromised. Bottom line: cybercriminals are successfully and consistently exploiting human nature to accomplish their goals.

During this web conference, our experts will discuss some of the well-known attacks and perhaps some of the lesser-known ones. We will examine the causes of these attacks and provide some insight on how to keep your company off the 2018 roster of shame. 

Be sure to include your questions for the group when you register for the live or on-demand version of the broadcast. CPE credit is available.
