Cybercrime – What You Need To Know

Please join us for a MBAF signature event where you will learn how cybercriminals are targeting you and your business. Our event will entail a short presentation, a power panel of cyber experts, followed by a networking cocktail reception with top level executives from our community.

Presentation: Cybercrime Trends in 2017

What cybercrimes can we expect in 2017? Crime-as-a-service, ransomware, cyber espionage, virtual currencies, and more… New trends in cybercrime are emerging with billions of dollars in estimated costs to the global economy. The volume, scope, and cost of cybercrime continue to reach incredible levels and are expected to increase even more. Learn what threats await in 2017, and how you can protect yourself, your family, and your business.

Power Panel: Cybercrime – What Can You Do?

Every day a new headline or tweet on data breaches or malware appears. More often than not companies are forced to be reactive to unforeseen threats. Learn what companies are doing today to protect themselves, their employees, and their clients.
