Topic: Overcoming the CyberSecurity Poverty Line

Smaller organizations continue to struggle with the cost of cybersecurity, and have to subsist below the “Cyber Security Poverty Line”. They strive to balance between the need to drive digital innovation with the cost of potential cyber threats and data breaches, while also streamlining costs and processes. This is a difficult feat, especially when there are so many challenges that prevent smaller companies from accessing affordable security software. This talk will discuss strategies around people, process, and technology designed to maximize the budget you have, help justify the budget you want, and help bridge the gap when budgets are tight.
