Security is not optional and yesterday’s security techniques are not working to minimize today’s security threats. Therefore, now is the time to update knowledge about protecting sensitive data.

Learn about the latest tools and techniques for securing data, including encryption, virus protection, secure communications, electronic signatures, secure authentication and more. Also, learn how to implement a practical, five-step approach to securing computers. Consider the types of questions to ask of staff to ensure server-based information remains protected. Extensive demonstrations will be used by a K2 instructor to teach the techniques and concepts presented.

Security failures, such as a breach of client or customer data, are costly—they can even drive a company out of business. What are the needed security tools and how are they used to secure sensitive data and systems? Can you afford to take the risk of attempting to manage today’s threats by using yesterday’s techniques? Participate in this program to learn how to implement viable and practical solutions to mitigate today’s security threats.
