Description

Security remains one of the top issues on the minds of most business professionals today -- and for a good reason! Unfortunately, given the ever-increasing volume of sensitive data our organizations store and manage, we have become prime targets for cybersecurity attacks. Fortunately, we can take steps to reduce our risks significantly. This session will teach you which measures will benefit you and your organization the most.

In a roundtable format, you will learn about security risks and solutions from the breadth and depth of experience of the K2 Enterprises team.
