Business attorney Sean Wagner of the Forrest Firm’s Charlotte office will speak to the small business community at the UNC Charlotte Cybersecurity Symposium.
The 19th edition of the UNCC Cybersecurity Conference will take place on Wednesday, October 10, from 2-4pm in the third floor salons of the university’s Barnhardt Student Activities Center. In 2018, the symposium is launching a new education program aimed at helping Charlotte-area small businesses. The small business program for the 2018 symposium is a two-hour workshop featuring experts with experience working with small businesses to build effective cybersecurity programs from operational, financial and legal perspectives.
Topics for discussion during the small business cybersecurity panel include the latest threat vectors facing small businesses; simple, but effective security controls; incident response best practices; utilizing managed services to lower risk; and case studies deconstructing recent enforcement actions on breached small businesses.
Panelists for the event include Sean Wagner of the Forrest Firm, Gaudy Jandron of IT services provider NorthState, and Jon Hightower of certified public accounting and business consulting firm GreerWalker LLP.
Mr. Wagner is a business attorney with deep experience in a wide variety of business transactions, commercial litigation, government investigations, and regulatory compliance matters. He also provides strategic, proactive counsel focused on helping companies navigate compliance and litigation risks associated with information security, digital services and products, cybersecurity, e-commerce, and data privacy.
