This event has been cancelled.

Please join CPABC Peace Region Chapter for a half-day seminar that will explore what is meant by cyber security – confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.

We will review various risk treatment options for dealing with information risk. We will also look at data classification, data ownership, the crown jewels, the importance of key security policies, and getting that biggest bang for the cyber security buck through security awareness and training.

In this seminar, we will also cover the importance of breaches and the type of business risks they can create, how they get detected and when. Finally, we will look at the importance of concepts like defense in depth, and the importance of incident response.
