Mobilizing A Collective Cyber Defense

Aug 28 Cover Flyer
As the constant news of yet another enterprise data breach becomes the norm, the private sector and government agencies must increase collaboration to increase resiliency and defenses to these attacks. While large corporations increase their budgets for cybersecurity, there must also be a concerted effort to ensure small and medium-sized businesses, sometimes the weakest link in our collective cybersecurity defenses, have the adequate tools and resources they need. Join a discussion between government and private sector subject matter experts and attendees on how we can best leverage public-private partnerships to mobilize a collective cyber defense.
What a Mess: Complying with the New California Privacy & IoT Laws and the GDPR

@ The Cove at UCI Applied Innovation


As numerous new privacy and security laws come into force, it’s not just large companies that need to comply. Small and mid-sized enterprises also will face penalties for failure to comply with these sometimes vague and even contradictory new laws. All businesses ignore these changes at their peril and time is running short to come into compliance.
