Does My Business Need a Cybersecurity Pro?

This presentation will provide business Information Operations Leaders and decision makers with questions to ask regarding how to invest in cyberdefense personnel and resources. When determining how your business fits into the larger digital landscape, do you wonder if you are doing enough, the right things, or wasting time/money/effort? Asking critical insightful questions about operations, sales, and marketing can help determine if the next step is hiring a full-time “cyber security guy” or bringing in a consultant to help determine the state of the organization.
