McLean, Va. (PRWEB) September 26, 2016
It’s no secret that cybersecurity continues to be a growing concern that businesses both large and small are faced with every day. What was once a threat to large corporations has become equally problematic for smaller organizations. Gone are the days when cyber attacks could be considered isolated incidents. Instead, they’ve become a routine occurrence against which no business is completely safe. Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s 2016 Cybersecurity Summit will share best practices and lessons learned and will discuss the current state of cybersecurity.
Rick Tracy, senior vice president and chief security officer at Telos Corporation, a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious agencies and organizations, will participate on a panel discussion focused on policy and regulation. The panel will cover information security policy and standards (banking/FIRC/FISMA/HHS) and discuss how to understand regulations and educate employees.
Thursday, September 29, 2016, 7:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. EDT
Hilton McLean Tysons Corner – 7290 Jones Branch Dr. McLean, VA 22102
