NTCA’s approach to helping your company become cyber-ready is to provide your company with the best possible solutions to help you transform information into action. Texas is part of the ongoing effort to get the message to members the importance of taking proactive measures to protect your company before it is too late.

This conference is for your team to learn how every aspect of your workplace is an “open door” for hackers to find the weak spots and get access to your company records.

Part of taking a proactive approach means to:
• Examine best practices for risk management, gain insights on imminent threats and ways to control a potential future cyber-attack.
• Participate in unique discussions with other professionals responsible for protecting the physical and virtual assets and infrastructure of rural broadband providers.
• Hear from notable cybersecurity speakers from the industry’s top companies on ways to develop and implement appropriate safeguards to keep your business and customers protected.
• Take full advantage of the wide range of content, including two tracks of learning sessions built to meet the various needs of your staff — from seasoned engineers to nontechnical employees.

Now more than ever, it is important to develop a continuous, proactive cybersecurity plan that will protect your business from security breaches that can cost your company hundreds of thousands of dollars, lost customers and your reputation.

You cannot afford to think “it won’t happen to me.”
