Information security-related risks to your business are on the rise and getting worse. The number and complexity of computer viruses, cyber attacks, theft, identity theft, vendor negligence and fraud continue to increase and no organization is immune.
Businesses of all sizes, including startups, privately owned and public companies face threats to the security of their information technology systems and sensitive information. Beyond regulatory compliance, it is a good business decision to protect sensitive information. A study conducted by the Ponemon Institute found that information privacy and security breaches can cost companies an average of $202 per compromised record and a total cost of $6.65 million. A security breach can result in irreversible damage to your finances and reputation.
So, the question is, what do you do?
Jorge Rey, director of information security and compliance at Kaufman, Rossin & Co., will discuss how to develop sound privacy and security programs as well as how to minimize your risk by understanding where data is. Rey has conducted more than 100 information security engagements in the financial services, healthcare, retailing, pharmaceuticals and technology industries. He is also a frequent speaker on IT operations and network security.
