Dallas Chapter Technology CFO Series | VIRTUAL

 

Cybersecurity: Navigating Threats in the WFH Environment from the CFO Seat

Cybercriminals have never been as active wreaking havoc around the world, and since so many companies do not have regular offices, the Cybercriminals have re-directed their efforts to professionals working remotely. Their number one target is the financial community, and CFOs need to be mindful of that. Phishing, malware, ransomware, and spear phishing have increased dramatically, and there are reports that more than $6 billion in ransomware has been paid in the past 12 months.  This panel will discuss important practical advice on how CFOs can protect themselves.
Doug Jones, SVP, Principal, RHSB
Peter Vogel, Of Counsel, Foley & Lardner LLP
Francis Tam, Partner, Moss Adams
 
Learning Objectives – Participants in this meeting will learn:

  • How to better understand Cyber risks

  • Whether paying ransomware is a good idea or not

  • What kind of IT leadership is needed

  • How to find the proper Cyber insurance

  • How to avoid total disasters
