Presented by Bill Boothe, President/Owner, The Boothe Group LLC

Your club has gone through the extensive and expensive process to set up safeguards to protect your organization’s network and data; but the work does not stop there. Cyberthreats are a continual and evolving concern, and steps to deflect an attack need to be intrinsic to your operations. This session will review current best practices that will help your club maintain a robust cybersecurity program. Practices include a review of system setup, staff training, malware protection (e.g., ransomware) and more. While some of these practices may be familiar, attend this session to review a full spectrum of techniques to maintain a healthy defense against cyberthreats. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Best practices that will help your club maintain a robust cybersecurity program.
