Topics to be discussed include: cybersecurity risks for every organization; handling the aftermath of a data security breach; analyzing and managing security vendors; proactive monitoring and responding to potential threats; criminal activity and the dark web; legal and insurance issues; HIPAA concerns and compliance; and sourcing cybersecurity threat.

Two new sessions have been added for the second day. Governor Holcomb’s Executive Council of Cybersecurity will feature Chetrice L. Mosley, cybersecurity program director for the Indiana Office of Technology. Kevin L. Mabry of Sentree Systems, Corp. will present Cyber Threats: The #1 Risk to Small Businesses.
