The presenters include: keynote speaker Kent Rhodes of Pepperdine University Graziadio Business School; Desraie Thomas of Datto cybersecurity; Michael Wong of Webroot cybersecurity; Howard Miller of local insurance agency LBW; and Jeremy Stepan of local IT support company Resurgence.

Topics set to be discussed include protecting your company’s data with disaster recovery, reviewing known threats with protection solutions and how cyber insurance can provide protection in the event of a breach.
