Practical Solutions to Protect Your Enterprise

Session Two of A Four Part Series on Cyber Security


Who Should Attend: Business leaders in all fields of practice, NOT just Technology.


Why is this Different:


  • You have attended panel discussions that have alerted you to the issues. This series will give you a deep view of the topics with real solutions and recommendations for you to explore.
  • You will help set the direction of the presentations by directly submitting your questions and concerns via e-mail to The speakers will do their best to address your submitted questions as part of the presentation or during the Q&A’s.


Cyber-crime and related disasters make headlines daily, resulting in a kind of shock or deer-in-the-headlights freeze, wherein many people and companies are unable to take even the most essential steps to avoid similar fates. Your goal is to become knowledgeable in order to protect your company before a serious issue is encountered.


This 4-part series will provide a practical and holistic approach to addressing a company’s overall cyber security challenge and actionable steps for:


1) Understanding and prioritizing what needs to be protected and how to do so;

2) Insuring against cyber risks that might (will inevitably) occur;

3) Legal implications and how to prepare for and avoid them; and

4) Top ten specific actions to improve your company’s defenses.


You will shake off the shock, get out of the headlights, and take home specific and achievable actions to dramatically improve your company’s cyber risk management and chances of avoiding cyber wreck, ruin, the headlines and insolvency.

Session Two:

Data Breaches Come In All Sizes


David J. Shannon, Esq., Chair, Technology, Media & Intellectual Property Practice Department of Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, P.C.


Date: Tuesday, April 25 – 6:00 - 9:00 pm

Location: Sullivan's Steakhouse - KOP


While behemoth data breaches such as the Home Depot and OPM incidents are the ones that tend to grab the headlines, the fact remains that a wide variety of data breaches impact businesses of all sizes every day. In this presentation, three very different data breach case studies will be explored – one small, occurring from theft of an accountant's laptop; one midsize, the result of hacker malware penetrating an ecommerce business; and one large, a PCI breach impacting 2.3 million credit card owners. While all three cases involve the same legal ramifications and exposures, each requires a customized response. This presentation will focus on the proper response to the everyday small, midsize and large data breaches. Issues impacting the response, will be germane to the discussion.


Learning Objectives:

1) Explain to executives the risks of both big and small data breaches

2) How executives can properly evaluate the costs of both large and small breaches

3) How Businesses must respond to a variety of data breaches
