Registration is free to attend this event.

Register here -

This one-day intense, high level workshop covers all aspects of preventing data breaches in a business environment, and it is suitable for security practitioners, IT staff, and manager/executives as well. We venture together into the heart of the hack, examine the breach landscape, the players, the techniques, major breaches that have happened, and how they were executed. We will pinpoint common areas of vulnerabilities and failures that facilitated those breaches. Then we'll learn how to use a “Security Framework” such as HIPAA, HITRUST, NIST CSF and others to minimize the chances of them happening to you. Last we’ll do a team exercise inspired by a real-world event to pinpoint root causes and identify preventive actions you can apply.

*Space is limited to 50 participants, so please register today!
Pizza will be provided for lunch.
