Don’t Overlook the Opportunity
Recovering from Hurricane Harvey is a time consuming and costly ordeal. However, such an event should cause all businesses to take a holistic look at their operations and consider opportunities that might otherwise be overlooked. This seminar will show you how to capitalize on two such opportunities – mitigate future risk through a cybersecurity program and improve competitiveness through better product development. Businesses cannot ignore the cybersecurity threats present in every industry and need to understand, just as Equifax is currently experiencing, that a cyber attack can be just as damaging to your bottom line as any natural disaster. Learn how vulnerability assessments, planning, and data management tools, particularly customized tools, can help you prepare for the inevitable. In addition, learn how this could be a perfect opportunity to restart your entrepreneurial approach to innovation. Discuss how to make the most out of the situation with new or better products and services.
