CISO or not, cyber security is a topic all consumers and business stakeholders should engage in. Everyone is a target and that makes all of us conduits for hackers to access our own personal data as well as our company’s data. Cyber security breaches can be devastating to both individuals and organizations.  The average cost of a cyber security breach is $4 million, and that doesn’t account for the financial impact caused by the loss of trust in your organization or brand reputation. And it’s been estimated that 50% of companies that have been hacked struggle to attract new customers as consumers often carry the brunt of a data breach –  by having their personal data exposed and exploited and the inconvenience that comes with the cleanup. Join your fellow Taft alumni in Denver for a discussion on the latest cyber security trends and threats, and learn some best practices that we can all apply to minimize risk to ourselves and businesses.
