Event description

Description

This is a three-part series, powered by Deloitte, to provide an opportunity for companies that are growing and scaling to learn the basics (and beyond) of cyber security, its importance, and how to ask the right questions to reduce the risk and impact of a cyber-attack or breach on their organization.

This series will broach the tough to understand topics and provide tools for understanding cyber risk and how to avoid it to CEOs and C-Suite executives of growing Health Tech, FinTech, Agri-Tech, SaaS, IoT, and other subsector companies.

The series comprises of two hour-long sessions with a larger group and one 1.5 hour-long break-out with a smaller, sector-focused group, spread over three different days.
