About the Program

In the United States alone, Cyber Security has become a multi-billion dollar industry since 2005. No person or organization is immune or fully protected from the cyber threat. The purpose of this presentation is two-fold. First, it is to help one to understand the enormity of the issue by providing a current snapshot of the cyber security challenge and its growth. The second goal is to review the status of cyber resilience countermeasures as part one’s overarching cyber security defense package. Finally, this discussion should help one to think of cyber resilience as an insurance policy that has to be purchased like taxes in a technological dependent world.
