LA Business and Industry Committee: Beyond Cost, The Ethical Dilemmas of a Data Breach

  • Spitfire Grill 3300 Airport Avenue Santa Monica, CA, 90405 United States (map)

Join Ariento CEO Chris Rose as he discusses the ethical dilemmas of data breach. It's almost every day we read about a new cyber hack or data breach in the news. While the big companies are getting all the cyber press, the greatest impact is on small businesses. According to Symantec, 62% of all breaches in 2015 were of small and medium businesses, and 60% of those breached went out of business within 6 months. This training takes a look at real life examples, and the decision points that came with a suspected data breach. The case study approach illustrates the often overlooked ethical considerations in evaluating and managing cyber security risk and the potential implications for CPA firms and their clients.
