BDO Orange County’s Manufacturing and Consumer Business Practices Invite You To A Panel Event
Cybersecurity: What Should Companies Be Doing to Prepare?

Cybersecurity is rapidly evolving, and attackers are more sophisticated than ever. Company breaches are increasing in frequency and are no longer happening to just large organizations. Small and mid-sized organizations across all industries are also being affected – and for a variety of reasons beyond financial gain. 

Leaders from BDO Orange County’s Manufacturing and Consumer Business practices invite you and your colleagues to listen to industry panelists talk about their implementation and remediation strategies to cyber security threats and attacks.  
  • Learn methods for identifying cyber risk and vulnerabilities, as well as remediation measures. 
  • Gain insights into optimizing cybersecurity strategies, making sure limited resources are deployed in the right areas to mitigate risk. 
  • Understand components of a cybersecurity risk management program, including an organization’s governance and operating model
