Virtual Symposium Targets Cyber Safety

These days, cyber attacks can be far more than credit card fraud or hackers breaking into a business’s website. ASSE’s upcoming virtual symposium on cyber safety will discuss key information on security issues that organizations face, including ways that security can be incorporated into hardware and software through prevention, resiliency and detection/reaction methods. This includes inherent risks to data security, privacy, and issues such as workplace injuries and life safety.
