“Reasonable” Cybersecurity for Businesses: Developing a Comprehensive Cybersecurity Strategy


CLE Credits earned: 2 GENERAL (or 2 LAW & LEGAL for WA state)

For small and medium size businesses, this tension is even worse. This program will provide you with the tools that you need to prioritize your resources to get the most bang for your buck. It will also show you how to develop the artifacts that you need for when your regulator comes calling about your cybersecurity program.

This course is co-sponsored by the Federal Bar Association.
