About the Webinar: Most associations are unprepared to deal with modern cybersecurity threats that continue to grow in both number and sophistication. Many organization leaders and boards understand the need to reduce their risk exposure but lack a practical action plan to achieve that desired outcome. This jam-packed session will provide expert tools and guidance on how to assess your risk, how to identify gaps in your cybersecurity controls, how to train your staff to understand the threats and properly respond and, finally, how to prepare for the likelihood that something bad will happen. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of where you are today and be better prepared to face the uncertainty of tomorrow’s cyber-attacks.

About the Speaker: Jeff Dettloff serves as President and Chief Problem Solver for Providence Consulting, a Lansing-based cybersecurity and IT management firm. Providence is a CompTIA Security Trustmark+ holder, has been recognized by CIO Magazine as one of the top 25 cybersecurity firms of 2017, and earned a spot on the 2018 CRN MSP 500 and Pioneer 250 lists as a top technology provider. Dettloff is the founder of the Defeat The Breach Coalition, a partnership of IT, legal, insurance, and public relations leaders helping organizations prepare for cybersecurity incidents.
