Michael Nelson from DFDR Consulting LLC to present April 2019 Alloy Academy Workshops

Alloy Silverstein welcomes Michael Nelson of DFDR Consulting LLC to guest present our April 2019 Alloy Academy lunch workshops.

Cyber Security or Incident Response – Which Will Your Business Invest in First?

Protecting your small business from cyber threats and data breaches is no longer optional — it’s a necessity. But the question becomes, do you proactively put measures in place first, or wait until there’s a breach that you have to address? Because if you’re not protecting your systems and data now, it’s only a matter of when.

Guest presenter Michael Nelson of DFDR Consulting LLC will discuss…

  • Common Security Attacks and Ways to Block and Prevent
    • Social Engineering / Phishing / Spear Phishing / Vishing
    • How an Individual / Business is Profiled
    • Lower End Technical Exploits / Vulnerabilities
  • Incident / Breach Response
    • Insurance Notification
    • Legal Involvement
    • Investigation
    • Notification / Fines / Costs
    • Remediation


You will leave this presentation knowing the low hanging fruit items that need to be addressed in your security posture as well as an action plan should you find your organization in an Incident Response situation.
