Regardless of how a cyber-interloper gets into your network, the next step taken by end users, business owners, and IT staff can determine the severity and consequences of the intrusion.

This one-day bootcamp will give you a solid background in understanding common threats to the security of our software and platforms, how to mitigate those threats, and how to implement best practices. Moreover, we’ll explore developing technologies, such as blockchain, and new trends in cybersecurity, such as cyber insurance.
