“Even NASA, the CIA and the IRS that invest many millions of dollars in cyber security have been compromised. That’s why we believe it’s so important to educate the folks in the C-Suite," said Hamish Davidson, ProviDyn President and CEO.

ProviDyn, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, hosted a security seminar on Tuesday, November 17, 2015, at the Cherokee Town and Country Club. The seminar, entitled “Demystifying Cyber Security – Executive Level Threat Briefing,” was attended by IT and business leaders from all over Metro Atlanta.
ProviDyn President and CEO Hamish Davidson and Solution Advisor Jed Fearon cited recent headlines about major corporations that have been breached despite tremendous budgets aimed at protecting company data as real life business cases about what to do and what not to do. Best practices for understanding and securing local assets, creating policies to protect your business, and practical tools for reducing liability were detailed.
“It’s impossible for an IT department to completely protect against today’s hackers,” said Davidson. “Even NASA, the CIA and the IRS that invest many millions of dollars in cyber security have been compromised. That’s why we believe it’s so important to educate the folks in the C-Suite. After all, they are the ones with the liability.”
“ProviDyn’s presentation was just right -- to the point, concise -- and included some great real world examples,” exclaimed Christopher Smurda, CFO of Integral.
