Boards identify cybersecurity as a primary area of risk but believe that they can improve their own knowledge as well as their level of confidence in their corporation’s readiness to defend against and deal with the aftermath of a cyber attack. With the guidance of our speaker from the FBI and a major NJ company’s CISO, the program will walk through the “anatomy of a breach,” beginning with understanding vulnerabilities through damage control and remediation. 7:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. - Networking & Breakfast 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. - Program and Q&A
