    Cybersecurity events are a matter of "not if but when." However, you can manage the magnitude of the event by understanding your business’s complexities before moving forward with a risk management solution.  Cybersecurity breaches are industry agnostic and business size agnostic, but there are also special circumstances for staffing agencies.  However, few companies have the in-house resources needed to translate IT risks as business risks.  This session will will cover "insider threats," whether intentional (such as employee data theft) or unintentional (such as a fraudulent wire transfer).
