May 2015

LogoBriggs and Morgan is proud to announce it has signed on with the 2015 Cyber Security Summit as a sponsor of its Small Business Forum. The 2015 Cyber Security Summit, to be held October 20-21, 2015 in Minneapolis, will bring together leaders to discuss the latest trends and techniques in cyber security.

Briggs shareholder Phil Schenkenberg assisted in securing a new feature of the annual Cyber Security Summit – the Small Business Forum, which will feature presentations specifically intended for small and middle-market organizations. The half-day event is designed for businesses that do not have a CIO or other dedicated in-house resources to manage security strategies. 

Session topics will include:

  • How is the risk profile going to impact the owner’s liability? What reporting requirements might apply if there is a breach?
  • Risk Management Strategies – What are my risks, and how can I best reduce those risks?
  • How does cyber insurance fit into to a risk mitigation strategy?
  • Company Valuation and Due Diligence Issues – Cyber risk matters if you are buying or selling business operations.

Topics are designed for owners, executives or general counsel of small and mid-size companies that:

  • Provide services to larger companies and the government, who are demanding that vendors understand and address cyber security issues.
  • Generate revenue online and/or receive customers’ financial or health data.
  • Know the company is at risk, but do not know how to begin assessing and addressing that risk.

These sessions are not designed for IT managers.

Please contact Phil Schenkenberg to receive a 10% discount code to register for the Small Business Forum.
