Protect your organization from the latest cyber threats and make cybersecurity a competitive advantage

On the occasion of the 16th Annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM)– a far-reaching awareness campaign and collaborative effort between government, industry, and academia, led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security –the Pell Center is partnering with the RI Joint Cyber Task Force, SENEDIA, and OSHEAN to offer a half-day cybersecurity awareness event focusing on the most pressing cyber threats facing businesses, local governments, and municipalities, and the need to build a culture of cybersecurity across organizations. 

Increasing ransomware attacks are a significant and growing cyber threat for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), as well as municipal and state agencies. In his keynote address, Cybereason's Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Israel Barak will discuss the reasons why SMBs, as well as cities and towns across the United States, have become such lucrative targets and why disaster recovery does not ensure security resiliency. He will also dive into how ransomware actors are creating long term damage that spans far beyond their victims' ability to recover from downtime.

The event will also feature other cybersecurity experts who will shine a spotlight on innovative and cost-effective solutions to combat cyber threats, including automation, AI, and machine learning to improve visibility into the organization’s network, develop stronger security strategies, and ultimately better respond to and recover from cyber incidents.
