Data Breach Investigation Summit & Training

Data Breaches are occurring at an alarming rate and increasing in their scope, frequency and impact and they don't discriminate by industry, geography or organization size. When a breach occurs, organizations, agencies and individuals need to learn how to more effectively:

  1. Identify/Detect that the breach has occurred
  2. Respond to the breach in an effective and timely manner
  3. Investigate the breach
  4. Prevent/Defend the organization from future breaches

The Data Breach Investigation Summit & Training is the most effective way to improve your readiness and strategy in combating risk that result from even a minor compromise. The variety of cyber security courses offered will provide you hands-on, immersion training on what it takes to identify, respond, investigate and defend against data breaches in your organization. You'll also be able to network and collaborate with fellow attendees facing similar sets of challenges.

This event also embeds our typical summit content throughout the course of training via complimentary lunch and learns and @Night sessions. This added material will give you the opportunity to hear from a variety of industry renowned speakers. You'll gain actionable knowledge of new trends and best practices to help reduce your risk of data breaches. View the full agenda.

This embedded format, coupled with all hotel rooms at the government per diem rate represent a very cost effective approach to getting the most from your cybersecurity training spend.
