1 Clock Hour | Domain C: Risk Management

Here’s the deal: Hacking is no longer just a bunch of teenagers in their mom’s basement. It’s big business, and they’re looking for every possible opportunity to get the goods on high-value individuals, companies, and organizations. When Target was hacked, it was through their HVAC supplier. Home Depot? Another third party supplier. What does that mean for you? If you’re doing events for financial, medical, or any large-scale event, YOU ARE A TARGET. And with everyone making a mad dash for getting their events online, there’s even more opportunity for bad actors.

While your software providers may offer “military-grade encryption”, if you or someone on your team is compromised, you could be handing over your attendees’ data to any number of malicious actors. There are simple things you can do to help protect yourself and your attendees' data, so let’s work through them together.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Participants will learn how and why the meeting and events industry has become a target for malicious cyber attacks.
  2. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the most common methods used by attackers.
  3. Participants will learn simple and concrete methods for protecting themselves and their attendees’ data.
