Cybersecurity has never been as imperative as it is today. As no organization globally is immune to attack, organizations will be judged not only on their ability to prevent, but to detect and respond. By doing the basics, organizations can mitigate 80% of the incidents or higher. Attend this session to ensure your organization has a firm handle on the hygiene and compliance level controls required to ensure a defensible security posture.
