“Big data,” who owns it and how to manage it is an increasingly prominent topic on conference agendas. But what about protecting your organization from breaches of confidential information, personnel data, and proprietary data or lost laptops, and disgruntled employees?

One of the biggest external threats organizations and businesses face is a cyber-attack that exposes confidential or personal information or an attack which brings your business operations to a halt. Internal threats can be equally as damaging. Truth is, more than 50 percent of breaches are caused by internal problems, such as disgruntled employees, lost laptops or social engineering/phishing.

The threat of an attack on a business’ network and data is constant and ever-changing, and really a question of “when,” not “if” a company will be a victim.

Attendees of this in-person or live-stream session will walk away with the following information:

  • What is the nature and scope of the risks to farmers and the agribusiness sector?
  • Which of these are the biggest risk factors?
  • Who are the likely perpetrators?
  • What do I need to do to protect my business, employees and customers?
  • What resources are available to me for protection?
