Established in 2004, last month marked the eleventh anniversary of The Department of Homeland Security declaring October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. In an effort to promote this initiative and extend its significance, Lincoln has dedicated the Fall of 2015 to dismantling misconceptions and advancing the obscure and complex realities posed by cyber security threats.
It is a little known fact that most hackers make entry into a network months before they execute their attack. Your system could be bookmarked for intrusion, and you won’t know it until the damage has been done. Some organizations discover the breach accidentally; initially soliciting an analysis of their IT environment for other reasons, only to end up uncovering the alarming fact that their data has been compromised. Either way, your company may never recover. In fact, 60% don’t, and that’s because 71% of data breaches target small businesses.
In alliance with one of its new cyber security partners – Cyber Safe Solutions – Lincoln is hosting an intimate Q&A discussion with subject-matter expert Domenick Gandolfo. “Has Your Network Been Bookmarked for Intrusion?” will be held on November 19th from 4 to 7 PM and will demonstrate how taking a proactive approach in overall IT security strategy has become a necessity in order to avoid suffering a breach your organization may never recover.
During this invite-only event, Gandolfo will examine:
- How the same assessment and prevention methods your organization is currently utilizing, can’t be depended on to detect an attack after having failed
- Why taking a proactive approach in overall IT security strategy isn’t a perception of luxury, but a necessary reality in order to mitigate an inevitable threat
- The emphasis on employee awareness, incident response, and significance of a cross-functional team of people – more so than any combination of applications – tasked with keeping your network secure
- How to expedite the process while simultaneously and efficiently reducing TCO as well as delivering a high ROI on technology investment
Domenick Gandolfo possesses 17 years of experience in security compliance and strategy, with core competencies in incident response, cost and risk management. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH), and GIAC Penetration Tester (GPEN). Gandolfo is also a member of InfraGard and the High Technology Crime Investigation Association. He has received numerous awards for his work and dedication to security policy analysis, prevention, assessment and consultation.
Those in attendance will have the opportunity to ask him questions concerning critical issues affecting their organization and engage in discussion with fellow business-decision executives.
Set to take place at Bookmarks Rooftop Lounge, located in Midtown Manhattan’s famous Library Hotel, guests will indulge in tasty hors d’oeuvres, literary inspired cocktails, and buffet-style dinner from this trendy local hot spot.
