DESCRIPTION: The U.S. National Cyber Security Alliance found that 60 percent of small companies are unable to sustain their businesses over six months after a cyber-attack. Some companies will inevitably fail due to cyber threats. Everyday, these businesses are confronted with new data points, threats, risks, and regulations, while managing their internal data sources and alerting. All of that noise can make it difficult to weed out what really matters. In this session, we will discuss comprehensive security solutions and review challenges, how to orchestrate a response, and more to build a stronger posture that will help you separate the signal from the noise.

FBI Intelligence Analyst, Michael Freed will discuss what you can do to protect yourself from cyber criminals, how to bring in the FBI, and what to expect from them if a serious cyber-crime happens.
