Description

The COVID-19 pandemic created an immediate need for both increased capacity and stronger security measures as businesses moved to remote work. At the same time, cyber criminals were taking full advantage of the situation with attacks on vulnerable networks.

How do you ensure that your business’ IT infrastructure is truly prepared for the next unexpected emergency? The Pennsylvania Chamber’s 2020 Annual Information Technology Architecture Conference will feature experts to guide you through lessons learned, privacy & legal issues, best practices, and steps you can take now to prepare your network.

What You’ll Learn

  • Business continuity planning—Business Information Group specializes in managed IT solutions and network security & monitoring. Chief Information Officer John Dolmetsch will highlight the most pressing security issues facing remote workers as well as how to successfully implement a business continuity plan so that your organization is prepared for the next disruption.
  • Cloud security—Cloud security has become one of the most important issues in today’s complex IT environment, and this session will focus on how to properly protect your company data while operating in the cloud.
  • How AT&T was prepared for the pandemic—AT&T provided more than 14 million broadband connections last year, and as a result of COVID-19, demand grew exponentially overnight. Learn how their mobilization efforts allowed them to rapidly meet this demand increase. Best practices for protecting both remote and on-site systems will also be discussed.
  • Cybersecurity and privacy concerns for remote workers—Cybersecurity and privacy issues continue to be of high importance. This interactive session presents a hypothetical ransomware scenario, and leads participants through the simulated attack and mitigation step-by-step, highlighting the legal implications and considerations at every stage of the process. We will also cover details on how to manage a data breach in which information is being held for ransom or has been stolen.

With the proper business continuity planning, security protocols, and security planning, your organization will be better prepared to respond to future emergency events.
