We've Been Hacked! What Do We Do?
 In our previous sessions on cybersecurity, we've covered cybersecurity threat awareness and steps you can take to protect your company.  But no data security program is airtight.  In this fourth and final installment of our series, we'll cover how to respond when you've experienced an attack.  What resources will you need?  What obligations do you have to notify others of the attack?  How do you work with law enforcement?  How do you limit and remediate damage?  How do you get back to normal operations? 

Emily Duke, of CyberSmartâ„¢ Law, LLC and Mary Franz, of Enterprise Knowledge Partners, make an encore performance to discuss these issues and answer your questions.

Coffee and bagels will be provided.
