Moderator: David Furr

Small doesn’t necessarily mean secure. More and more, small and midsize businesses are targeted for cyberattacks because they typically lack the resources to adequately defend themselves. Cybersecurity is no longer an IT problem; it’s an organizational problem. Solutions are often both challenging and expensive and exceed the budgets of smaller organizations. So how do businesses find a balance between cost and security? What resources exist for businesses to enhance cybersecurity? This panel will provide an overview of existing frameworks and advice on finding affordable solutions to cybersecurity challenges.
