Each day, hackers and other cyber criminals are attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in your business' systems or those of vendors, service providers, and other third party companies with whom you do business. Your data is at risk, despite any security measures currently in place. At this point we realize that we're preaching to the choir here...

If you're like the business or IT leaders we know, data security is top of mind. You know that educating employees about cyber security is crucial to keeping one step ahead of attackers. But just because you KNOW it's important, doesn't mean you have the time or resources to act or stay current yourself. So we did some research on upcoming conferences, which can be a great way to gather timely information on recent cyber security news and best practices that you can pass on to employees.

New York Cyber Security Summit
When: 9/21, 8am-6pm

The Cyber Security Summit will provide exclusive access to the brilliant minds of leading edge solution providers and world-renowned experts in the field of information security. This is the premier event for C-level and senior executives tasked with safeguarding their companies and infrastructure from cyber attacks. 

New York Metro Joint Cyber Security Conference
When: 10/5, 8am-4pm

Going into it's third year, this conference is a smart collaboration of the top professional IT, security, and technological associations in NYC, including the Open Web Application Security Project, Information Security Systems Association, and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. The sessions you attend here will help put the current security landscape into perspective and educate you on what security practices are best for your business.

New York City Tech Security Conference 2016
When: 10/12, 8am-5:15pm

This exciting event will feature up to 60 vendors and a dozen industry experts conducting educational speaker sessions. Get caught up on current developments and issues in cloud, email, and social media security, along with LAN, VOIP, and compliance practices.

To keep your IT environment and data protected, it pays to learn about current threats, how to apply best practices and tools like multi-factor authentication to your security strategy, and where to find resources to help you manage these tools. Meeting and speaking with leading industry professionals similar to yourself can provide educated guidance into the best solutions for your company.

Regardless of whether you have internal IT support, an outsourced Managed Services Provider, or a combination of the two to oversee your business' IT environment, existing security measures can often be improved. Discover new ways to protect your business at one or more of these conferences.
