Proactive Defense In Lieu of Panicked Response

This discussion covers real-world examples dealing with reactions to cyber security breaches and how tools, processes, and procedures would have either mitigated or completely prevented the attack. You will learn how shifting from the “fire fighter” approach to a methodical, specific and targeted cyber security defense strategy, will change your mindset and daily workflows. Knowing how attacks happen, what they target, why and how empowers organizations into preventing breaches at times while limiting the scope of damage and invasion in other instances.

Participants will gain value in understanding how mainstream attacks occurred, what the organizations impacted failed to do to prevent the breach, and how technology, people and processes can mitigate or prevent such attacks. This information will help you understand where your organization has weaknesses similar to previous victims and can be done to prevent them from happening to you.

Venue: STEAM Research and Education Centerhttps://…anicked-response/

Despite its critical and growing importance, computer science is taught in only a small minority of U.S. schools. By providing experiential learning for students we help students not only develop critical thinking skills and problem solving skills through failure and reflection, but we show them the possibilities that could be in their future and how to obtain them. Opportunities to learn computer science skills are critical for every student today. These skills are life changing for most, especially students in undeserved communities. We Connect The Dots is opening our first STEAM Research & Education Center in Syosset, NY. This facility will play a key role in supporting workforce development and educational programs for communities across Long Island.
