Hacking Community VS. Service Providers: How exposed are you? Computer Forensics Webinar

As our technology is getting smarter, so are the individuals that are looking to compromise your most sensitive data.  Today, the hacking community is looking for the easiest way to brake into your network to expose Personal Identifier Information (PII), Personal Credit Information (PCI), and Personal Health Information (PHI).  Most recently, law firms and financial institutions have been in the radar for a corporate data breach; as outlined in the Bloomberg article below.

“China-Based Hackers Target Law Firms to Get Secret Deal Data”

However, law firms and financial institutions are not the only industries in target, all service providers should be at risk.  It is very important to understand the risk that you and your company faces with the daily activities with laptops, smartphone and tablets.  It is also very important to understand the security precautions that should be addressed to keep you secure from a possible breach.
