Kevin Beaver, author of "Hacking for Dummies" will host Preparis' information security webinar

We're going to share with you many other important aspects of information security that, unless someone tells you, you'll likely only learn the hard way. And that's no fun."

Preparis, a leading provider of business continuity and life safety technology and services, will offer a complimentary webinar IT & BC: Filling the Gaps to Protect Your Business on Tuesday, Nov. 12. Webinar registrants can learn about aligning information security protocols with their business continuity and disaster recovery plans to ensure their company can recover from a malware attack or a phishing scam.

For this session, Preparis has partnered with an information security expert who has more than 24 years of experience in protecting businesses from cyber threats. Kevin Beaver is the author of 11 books on information security including the highly-popular "Hacking for Dummies" and "The Practical Guide to HIPAA Privacy and Security Compliance”, plus he’s been featured on CNN and in The Wall Street Journal.

"We're particularly excited for this session, and to have Kevin Beaver as our guest speaker," said Armistead Whitney, CEO of Preparis. "Kevin's experience in the world of information security to help protect businesses against cyber threats will be valuable insight to this session’s attendees."

Information security is no longer just about running virus scans or complex password. An entire organization – from frontline employees to C-level executives – needs to know how social engineering works along with proven protective measures to keep its people, data, revenue, and brand safe from cyber threats.

“You know the tools and you're probably familiar with the methodologies,” Beaver said. “That's why I'm going to share with you many other important aspects of information security that, unless someone tells you, you'll likely only to learn the hard way. And that's no fun.”

Joining this session will be Doug Langley, Vice President of Business Continuity Solutions at Preparis. The team will discuss gaining control of your compliance requirements such as PCI and HIPAA while minimizing overall business risks.

"We're privileged to have Doug on our business continuity services team,” Whitney said. “Doug is a huge benefit to Preparis and our clients, as he guides us through every planning phase of the business continuity and disaster recovery lifecycle," Whitney explained. "Having Kevin and Doug on a webinar together to discuss incorporating cyber threats into an all-hazards crisis management's like an hour of free consulting services for your business."
