Be Cyber Smart: Be Prepared to Effectively Respond to Data and Privacy Breaches!

Date: Sunday September 16, 2018, 8:00am-12:00pm

Increasingly, privacy breaches and cyber-security incidents related to personal information (including personal health information) are being reported in the media with many organizations and information governance professionals asking themselves what steps they should be taking to prevent, prepare for and respond to these types of incidents.

Participants will have the opportunity, through an interactive workshop, to learn from colleagues and gain expert insights on best practices when it comes to pre-breach prevention and mitigation strategies and specific measures to implement in the unfortunate circumstance where an organization is a victim of a cyber-security incident or privacy breach. Preventative tools such as policies and user education will also be addressed.

This workshop is particularly geared to the various stakeholders who may be required to pilot their organization through the complexity of managing cyber and privacy risks.  Cross-functional teams are strongly encouraged to participate.

Social Event: Wild Magic Dinner & Show

The Greg Frewin illusion spectacle, is a quintessential component of a visit to Niagara Falls. The show is breath-taking with a Vegas style format and features illusions that are both one of a kind and internationally renowned, performed by the International Grand Champion of Magic, Greg Frewin. The perfect entertainment destination for any visitor to Niagara Falls, the show has been hailed as a jaw-dropping magic experience and a family friendly entertainment experience. The show features real tigers including a rare white Siberian, and exotic birds from around the globe. These mesmerizing animals are an integral piece of the Greg Frewin Theatre experience.
