In-person at Carroll Community College with virtual option available.
The rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape presents operational challenges to all businesses, from start-ups to large corporations. Far beyond the technical challenges of keeping data secure, cyber-attacks create liability and regulatory compliance issues across the entire chain of vendor/client relationships. This event will explore the business impact of cybersecurity (i.e., insurance, legal liability, and financing) with experts across multiple industries to help attendees understand cybersecurity trends, challenges and impact on business operations. How is liability determined in a cybersecurity breach? How does risk exposure affect financing, investments and loans? How are cybersecurity regulations formulated, promulgated and enforced? As a business owner, how can I mitigate my risks? These questions and more will be covered.

KEYNOTE SESSION #2: THE ROLE OF CYBER INSURANCE IN MANAGING CYBER RISK IN MANUFACTURING COMPANIESCyber insurance is a relatively new insurance product and is rapidly maturing in an age of heightened security threats, ransomware, and business disruption. Organizations need to combine IT security, Industrial Control technology, and cyber insurance as part of an overall cyber risk management program to reduce their cyber exposures to an acceptable level. Meanwhile, cyber insurance is becoming more expensive and in some cases, not even offered if organizations do not meet the increasing specific requirements of insurance companies for certain IT Security controls. In this session, learn how to best approach purchasing and managing cyber insurance in a highly disrupted market, and how to best use cyber insurance before, during, and after a cyber disruption with special considerations for manufacturing companies.

KEYNOTE SESSION #3: WELCOME TO THE DATA CARE INDUSTRYThe term "cybersecurity" must change with society. "Data Care" allows us to emphasize the concept of cybersecurity being a team sport, where everyone has a responsibility to take care of their data to keep it protected and private. Meanwhile, the federal government has implemented cybersecurity mandates across industries. These protocols are a necessary foundation for data care and should be bolstered by organizations’ own processes and cybersecurity measures just as they have been in healthcare. In this session, relevant cybersecurity history, a case study, discussion of board roles in cybersecurity, and data care best practices for businesses will be shared
