VCW 2021: I Know It When I See It

November 23, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST


Join our next Virtual Cyber Workshop (VCW) 2021 on Data Protection.

In an effort to keep our members, the Greater Washington DC region, and the world informed and connected we are holding a series of FREE Cyber workshops. We want to give you an outlet as we all adjust to the new norms we are faced with as a result of the escalating health concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

We have a great lineup of presenters who will cover a variety of interesting topics for which one (1) CPE can be earned for each webinar attended. You will need to self-certify, however, as GWDC will not be sending you a CPE certificate.

In case you missed our cyber workshops, click here to view all recordings.

VCW 2021: I Know It When I See It

I Know It When I See It - Importance of Controls to Protect Data

Join us for a lively discussion on why controls are critical to the protection of our data. What are controls, who is responsible for controls, and what happens when effective controls are not in place? We will take a look at the largest data breaches, ransomware, and other cyber-attacks. Could they have been prevented?
