CLA Roundtable: Cyber Crime Trends
Thursday, April 18, 2019, 12 p.m.-1:30 p.m.
Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation
Hackers have learned to profit from their activities.  While breaches at large companies like Target, Marriott, and Equifax dominate the news this threat is significant for the small organizations as well.  Virtually every industry segment is affected, including small businesses.  Indeed, any organization that stores personal financial information on the network or conducts online cash management is a potential target.  Any organization that relies on its technology being available is a potential target.   In addition, payment fraud targeting wire transfers, automatic clearing house payments, and credit cards is increasing at an alarming rate. Historically, hacking has been a high risk issue only for banks, but attackers are now targeting all businesses in an effort to access bank funds via online payment methods.
This session will describe the threat landscape, discuss regulatory efforts to address the threat, and provide insight on how business leaders can effectively address this emerging threat.
Discussion topics:
  • What is cyber crime?
  • Payment fraud trends and tactics hackers are using
  • How and why hackers are targeting you
  • Overview of recent cyber crime litigation issues
  • Common information security weaknesses
  • Solutions to help minimize risk

No cost; please RSVP. Lunch is included for those who RSVP here.

Thanks to CLA for their partnership.
