Please join us on January 10, 2018 for our next CLE luncheon at The Plaza Club where Gavin George, partner in the Dallas office of Haynes and Boone, will be giving a presentation entitled: “Top 10 Cybersecurity Myths -- plus Best Practices for Preparation and Response.”
Cybersecurity is a realm that often conflates myth with reality, thereby obscuring certain threats and causing overreaction to others.  A key to developing a sophisticated approach to cybersecurity is to dispel these fundamental myths that often cause organizations to incorrectly assess threats or misallocate resources.  Don’t miss this presentation where we will learn about the Top 10 Cybersecurity Myths and the best practices for preparing for and responding to cybersecurity issues at your company.

Please email with any specific, topic-related questions you would like our presenter to address or expand upon. 
Feel free to invite individuals from your company who are not attorneys, but may benefit from learning more about this subject!
