    Many organizations have spent a great deal of time and money improving their technology infrastructure to protect themselves from security breaches.  However, most non-technical individual professionals are unsure of what cyber security really means for them, if they are currently at risk for being hacked, and how they can easily keep their information secure.

    The instructor will demonstrate real-world, simple and practical steps and techniques that professionals can easily deploy to protect themselves, their organization, and their patients.
