North Central PA Technology Briefing 2018

April 6 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Regardless of its size, no organization is safe from a data breach. A breach can happen to any organization, at any time.

According to The Denver Post, 60% of small companies that experience a cyber attack are out of business within six months.

Even if your company is able to withstand a cyber attack, the damage has been done and your reputation could be ruined. Can your company afford to NOT have adequate security?

Industry Experts will be discussing the current state of cyber security concerns for small and mid-sized businesses as well as offering free assessment tools to guide you through the confusion of how to address this challenging business need.

Stephen Deming, Sr. Technical Solution Professional, Microsoft Corporation

How the Cloud Makes you MORE Secure – There is a common misconception in the technology arena, that the Cloud is inherently insure. But it isn’t the Cloud that is insecure so much as it is the broader exposure of “less than robust” security strategies that makes the Cloud appear to be insecure. Join Steve for a spirited discussion on modern threats, attack vectors and how we can turn the tables to leverage the Cloud to make our business technology MORE secure.

Three Future Technologies You Can Explore Today – Last year, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, released his book Hit Refresh, where he explored his personal and business philosophies along with his vision for the future of technology and Microsoft. As part of that exploration, he identified three key technologies that will impact our future: Mixed Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. Join Steve for a brief introduction of these technologies, what are their potential impacts and how we can start leveraging that potential today!

Establishing a Corporate Cyber Security Program – Cyber security is a hot topic these days and every company interprets and reacts to security differently. By leveraging the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) cyber security controls documented in Special Publication 800-171r1, corporations can establish a common baseline of cyber security controls, which will support a holistic approach for security. Through the use of freely available tools, this session will discuss how a company can create a comprehensive cyber security program.
