Next DIA meeting February 21 to explore how to protect your company from cyber attacks

Google the term “cyber attacks” on any given day and you’ll likely come up with dozens of menacing headlines including:

  • Cyber Warfare with Russia now a greater threat than terrorism
  • Wi-Fi flaw means every modern network and device is vulnerable to hack
  • National Cyber Security Centre confirms global ransomware incident
  • U.S. child hacker launches cyber attack on Brussels Airport

“After a hiatus during the first half of 2017, the Locky Ransomware ramped up in a big way in Q3 of 2017 with 3 new campaigns. Roughly 10% of firms reported it, which may not seem like much until you realize that percentage spans tens of thousands of organizations. All told, 22% detected some type of ransomware in Q3.” – Fortinet Threat Landscape Report.

The fact is that, if you haven’t been hit, it may only be a matter of time! Be sure to attend this important meeting on cyber security and protecting your company on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at Spicers, 200 Galcat Drive in Vaughan, Ontario. Refreshments will be served at 6 pm, the meeting will start promptly at 7 pm and end at 8:30 pm.

The presenter will be Craig Barretto, President and Lead Consultant at Nexgen Security, a company specializing in infrastructure vulnerability assessment, pen-testing and network security, and helping clients respond to cyber security events through incident response and digital forensics. Key topics will include Knowing Your Risks and Finding Your Vulnerabilities. How do YOU handle threat and vulnerability management, application security, social engineering and incident response? In our computer/data-dependent environment, protecting your business and yourself is more than just running Symantec once a month and having what you consider a “decent” firewall.
