Protect Your Company from Major Threats – Breakfast and Learn

WMEP is pleased to offer these sessions in partnership with the Wisconsin Procurement Institute

According to Allianz Risk Barometer 2018 the largest risk of concern to U.S. companies is Cyber Incidents. Chances are close to 100% that your company has already been probed for vulnerabilities.  While technology infrastructure is important, 80% of your vulnerability is through your own people and the security protocols they do or do not follow.

Through this session you will learn what steps you can take to begin developing a risk management plan for mitigating this top threat.
