Size does not matter when it comes to cybersecurity and cyber-risks. Small and medium sized companies are just as much a potential target for cybercriminals and state-sponsored cyber actors as the large corporations are.
The challenges of managing these risks are however entirely different. Less resources and smaller budgets make getting the right things done the right way even more important. At the same time, most small and medium sized businesses are connected to a rapidly growing number of services and partners for which they (co-)own the responsibility of cybersecurity, data-protection and even GDPR compliance.
The challenges small and medium sized companies face are not just a matter of available competence and expertise within the organization. The complexity already starts with mismatches between demand and capacity of the companies in this significant part of our economy, and the offerings by the major service providers.
Nonetheless, small and medium sized companies need to be prepared for cyber incidents and face the challenges of our rapidly growing connected society.
Objectives and Outcome:
This training is intended for leaders and owners in the small and medium sized business segment, and for service providers that want to optimize their services for these businesses. Participants of this training receive a practical check-list and action plan to manage their cybersecurity responsibilities.
About Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag
Dr. ir Johannes Drooghaag, commonly known as JD, started his career in Applied Information Technology and quickly realized that the development and complexity of technology outpaces the development of our understanding of technology.
Working based on the principal that we don’t have to understand the bits and bytes to use technology, but we must understand how to use it optimal and secure, Johannes developed a wide range of consulting services, training programs, keynotes and workshops to allow people and organizations to do just that: embrace technology in the optimal and secure way. The Human Element in Cyber Security, The Human Element in Agile and Cyber Security for Road Warriors (and Couch Potatoes) are examples of these programs.
Working as consultant, trainer and speaker with clients and partners around the globe, the mission is crystal clear. Bridge the gap between what we do and what we know.
I am JD. I love what I do, and so will you!
