Mid-Missouri Cyber Security Summit

October 6, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm


[threecol_two]Mid-Missouri’s only security summit for top business owners, executives, CIOs, CISOs and critical technology security staff.

There is nothing as essential or as vulnerable as your organization’s network. It provides access to your critical applications and houses your sensitive company and client data. A single network security breach can shut down your operations for days or allow a hacker to steal vital organization data. This is happening in mid-Missouri, and you could be next. It is simply a matter of when – not if – your organization will have a problem and whether or not you are ready.

Just when you think things are fine, hackers hit. Always keep learning how to better protect your business. You don’t want to be the one to blame when they strike. Join us to gain an exclusive look at the changing security landscape with local security and software experts. Together we will explore the challenges you’re facing as you struggle to fight off new threats.

Jerry Gamblin (@JGamblin), a security professional and white hat hacker will  talk about IoT Security and will share some of his recent research and show how easy it is for criminals to hack the least expected devices on a corporate network and use them to pivot around to find the company’s crown jewels.

Much like the rest of the world, mid-Missouri has seen its fair share of ransomware over the past 18 months. According to Newsweek, Americans paid over $325 million due to ransomware attacks in 2015. So how do you protect you and your organization? What is the appropriate response? What are the legal issues and what is the role of law enforcement?

Our Cisco Security Expert, Kevin, will explore the broad survey of security aspects (ie: network security, data security, social engineering, physical security etc.) that need to be considered when organizations are addressing their vulnerabilities in regards to Cybersecurity. He will then apply these broad concepts to a real world use case and analyze how it played out in reality which will include the techniques and methods they used to resolve the issue as well as solutions that could have been used to prevent the situation from ever happening in the first place.
