Cybersecurity is the top concern for CEOs in the United States, according to a 2019 Conference Board survey of more than 800 CEOs and 600 C-suite members.  Reputational damage, financial loss, and trade secret vulnerability can be directly related to your business strategy for addressing key cyber challenges. Hear from an industry expert on subjects like ransomware, securing IOT, and additional resources for picture archive protections and telemedicine.
