SARASOTA, Fla. (Sept. 23, 2015) — We’ve all read the stories of major corporate data breaches such as the Office of Personnel Management, Anthem Insurance, Target, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard University, Army National Guard and more. But less well-known is that 60 percent of small businesses go out of business within one year of a cyber breach, and even large businesses can be crippled.
In response to this growing threat, Doug Logan, CEO and Principle Consultant for Sarasota-based Cyber Ninjas, will give a presentation on “Cyber Security – Securing Your Company’s Future” at the Suncoast Technology Forum’s Techbyte Luncheon, Oct. 20 at the Polo Grill and Bar, 10670 Boardwalk Loop, Lakewood Ranch.
“With data breeches, ransomware and cyber espionage on the rise, the success of a company now is directly linked to its cyber strategy,” Logan said. “Failure to account for the growing risks can mean major financials losses and company failure.”
Among Cyber Ninjas’ guarded list of clients is the federal government in Washington, D.C. Founder Doug Logan is an acknowledged expert in operating on the leading edge of cyber strategy and is known nationally for his teaching on the subject.
During the luncheon presentation, Logan will review the current cyber security threat landscape, modern cyber adversaries, why they may be interested in your organization, common ways and terminology associated with how they might get in, and what you can do in your organization to mitigate these risks, regardless of your size.
“Every company needs to have a strong presence on the Internet and most conduct business over it,” Logan said. “This opens a portal to criminals and hackers. Everyone is a target.”
Doug Logan has more than 15 years of experience across a wide area of IT, and a passion for teaching. He both understands the intricacies of the technology, people, and processes and how to communicate the challenges and solutions in a way that management can understand and implement.
