Virtual Breakfast Speaker Series | What you Need to Know: Cybersecurity in Today’s New Normal



Cybersecurity was already of crucial importance to nearly all businesses. But with the onset of COVID-19 in early 2020, it’s clear that businesses of all sizes are at great risk of disruption. The rapid changes brought on by the pandemic and economic shift have added a new layer of concerns and threats. Ransomware attacks, fraud and growing regulatory and privacy requirements continue their steady march to impact organizations across the globe. 

Join the Arizona Technology Council on Tuesday, August 4 for a compelling online cybersecurity seminar featuring a distinguished panel of experts, including nationally regarded security expert Frank Dickson of International Data Corporation (IDC) and Cosant Cyber Security, who will share valuable insight and strategies to prevent a widespread digital shutdown happening at your company.

Additional panelists include Craig Robinson, program Director in IDC’s Security Services practice whose impressive expertise includes IoT security, blockchain services, threat detection and response services; as well as Arizona-based security and IT expert Brian Blakely, a founder of several successful IT and information security firms. Certified as CISSP, CISM and CISA, Blakely has had several executive leadership roles as CIO, CISO, President and CEO.
