Wednesday, February 23, 2022

3:00 PM PST – 5:00 PM CST – 6:00 PM EST


In the past 23 months, we've experienced the beginning of an era that has seen cybersecurity and cybercrime at the center of it all. Since the pandemic began, cybersecurity has been named a top priority for national security and we've witnessed some of the largest, and most destructive cyber breaches in history. 

These attacks continue to evolve, and this evolution creates constantly changing threats to public and private sectors. If our defense and recovery processes aren’t changing along with it, we may not be prepared to bounce back when it finds you.
