1:30-2:00 No Longer “Nice to Have” — Privacy and Security is the Law
Small to mid-size businesses may think they’re too small to get noticed by bad actors. Actually, they are prime targets. Moreover, state, federal and international legislation have begun to catch up to address the imperative of protecting data. With the advent of comprehensive privacy and security regulations in GDPR, CCPA, and various state laws, safeguarding data is no longer aspirational, but rather a necessary practice. Two attorneys from Briggs and Morgan break down what you need to know in a digestible overview of the legal landscape and provide you with helpful takeaways for your business.
Speakers: Cyrus C. Malek, Attorney, Briggs and Morgan, Professional Association; Brett Hebert, Attorney, Briggs and Morgan, Professional Association

Just because you only see the cyber breaches that happen to big name companies on the news doesn’t mean they are the only targets. Small and mid sized companies have become the favorite target of cyber criminals all over the world. But why is an unknown small to mid-sized company a target for a cyber breach? Why would they want your data? This session will explore why cyber criminals are increasingly focusing their efforts on accessing the networks of business just like yours and how you can start to secure your network without breaking the bank.

3:15-4:00 pm Third Party Risk Management for Small Business
Small businesses providing services to an enterprise will normally be required to undergo an assessment or audit to demonstrate they have ample capacity to protect any data they will host or process. Differentiation between service providers is often based on cyber security capabilities in addition to the quality of services offered. We will review common cyber security controls and capabilities assessed and required of service providers by Enterprises. Experience is based on multiple third-party assessments early in the vendor selection process involving many different types of services.
