Cybersecurity Forum

Overview
As the number of cyber attacks continue to increase, it is important to stay connected with industry peers by sharing experiences and practical solutions to educate oneself about the evolving threat landscape. The purpose of the Cybersecurity Forum is to create a community that will educate its members through insight and knowledge about key issues in information security and risk management. By collaborating on best practices, we can help develop solutions that meet the business needs of its members.

Mission statement
To create an information security community that provides a place for thought leadership, education, industry development and community service.

Audience
Target members include practitioners at all levels of the security field in a broad range of industries. Initially we will use the Cloud distribution list for our events/programs.

Goals
The primary goal of the Cybersecurity Forum is to create a center of excellence in the community to:

  • Draw in new Tech Titans membership with information security companies, as well as other companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area
  • Enhance professional growth through relationship building
  • Increase the sharing of expertise among members in the field of information security
  • Drive event attendance with a goal of 40‐50 attendees for major events and a goal of 10‐15 attendees for special topic discussions

Events
Major events will be held quarterly throughout the year through a “Lunch and Learn” and a handful of “small special topic discussions.” Each event will be strategically planned by the steering committee to ensure relevant topics are chosen from the members' suggestions, industry news and professional experience of chosen speakers. Seminars offering education training, forum meetings and networking opportunities will also be held throughout the year.

Cyber-attacks against small businesses have more than tripled since 2011. But unfortunately, many best practices are geared towards large enterprises or government organizations. Faced with this kind of complexity, small businesses may assume that real cybersecurity is out of their reach, so they give up and just hope for the best.
The good news is that cybersecurity doesn?t have to be complicated or expensive. This seminar will cover specific and practical cybersecurity controls that small businesses can implement, right away, to improve their security and reduce their risk of cybercrime. 60% of small companies that suffer a cyber-attack are out of business within six months. Join us to learn specific, mission-critical improvements that you can implement for your small business right away.
