Tammy McCrary, CEO of CTSI, feels this is a critical time for businesses throughout SW Georgia to be informed on issues surrounding Cyber Security. The size of the company is not important to cyber criminals, evidenced by the recent attacks on Equifax, Deloitte, and Augusta University Medical Center. While we hear about the attacks on large companies most often, plenty of small companies are attacked as well. It is CTSI’s goal to be the number one resource on cyber security in SW Georgia.
The CCSA focuses on the Cyber Security Framework, Security Incident Management, Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing, Essential Cyber Policies, Encryption, Establishing a Cyber Security Program. This information is invaluable for compliance professionals and managers, security officers, security practitioners, privacy officers and senior IT professionals and anyone else involved in the overall security of an organization impacted by compliance regulations.
This special opportunity is brought to you by CTSI. For more information, contact Beth Brown, CHP, at 229-446-9641 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
