Presentation Abstract:

Fueled by a series of attacks, IT Security has become a strategic security interest the past few years. Many of these "cyber" attacks focused on business and personal information not available even ten years ago. Most project managers have learned to understand risk from a purely cost perspective. Derrick will provide information regarding these risks and guidance on how managing these new risks can help your brand as well as your bottom line.

Attendees will learn:
- How to define risks you likely don't even know about
