What is a network security breach and how to avoid it

Tony Rucci

Tony Rucci

Tony Rucci founder of /Root Technology focuses on the most overlooked aspect of a company’s operations: its security. By helping companies protect themselves from hackers and other criminal activity both internal and external to their corporate networks.

Is your network in danger? What to do if there is a security breach? How to protect your company from cyber attacks?

Tony will answer these questions and share a case study about a Credit Union in Florida whose systems had many breaches despite there being no indications of any security problems.

Learn how vulnerable networks are and how volatile attacks can be as well as the value of “Self Assessments” for internal network infrastructure.
