What’s My Exposure? Protecting Business Sensitive Data Amidst the Pandemic Chaos – April 23, 3PM ET

i3, LLC has announced an important session geared toward family office and family business data security.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world. Within this changing environment, one constant remains clear; criminals adapt quickly and target the diligent and unaware alike.

Bad actors have increased cyber-attacks and capitalize on strained technology security teams. They may launch their attacks under the cover of COVID-19 related information while using tactics such as phishing, whaling, malware, sale of counterfeit goods, investment fraud, and more. Pandemic-themed scams targeting businesses and remote workers include Public Health scams, Government Alert and Check scams, Business Email scams, IT Department email scams, Supply scams, Robocall scams and Data scams.

Join i3 and Black Lantern Security on April 23 at 3PM ET as we discuss how you can protect your business and your employees in unusual times. Learn:

1. How to identify new and novel sources of pandemic-based, business risk;
2. Where to concentrate limited cybersecurity resources;
3. What to do in the event of a cybersecurity incident.
