Cybersecurity: When the Unexpected Happens, What Do You Do?


OCT 28, 11:00 AM-12:30 PM


Event Description:

The increase in remote work during the pandemic saw an increase in cybercrime incidents, leaving many businesses to question the security measures they and their employees utilize each day. Many small- to medium-sized businesses have been left grappling with how to address a breach of security, how to prepare their employees and their systems to address potential breaches, and what to do in the event of a cyberattack.


With this Rely Series event, Aberdean Consulting’s Jim Blair, Infosec’s Adam Kohnke and Tetra Defense’s David Kruse will join forces to help business leaders make real-time choices about cybersecurity at an event that you won’t want to miss. These experts will guide attendees through a simulated ransomware attack, and attendees will be tasked with making – and facing the consequences of – their decisions in response to this attack. Throughout the simulation, attendees will have access to a panel of experts that will share insights into how this attack could have been prevented, and how to best respond.


At the beginning of 2021, the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce launched In Tandem[ic], an initiative to provide leadership for businesses, lighting the path forward through the pandemic and the recovery. By increasing support to the community through expanded programming, engagement and resources, we hope to accelerate into the curve of Greater Madison’s economic recovery.


A part of In Tandem[ic], the Rely Series is presented by the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation, with support from American Transmission Company (ATC), Monona Bank, Aberdean Consulting and EZ Office Products.


The Rely Series allows business leaders of primarily small- to medium-sized organizations to learn from and engage with some of the businesses whose thoughts, ideas, innovations and information we rely on. Please note that this series is designed for business leaders, business owners and decision-makers.

To ensure a safe event, we will require that all in-person attendees upon arrival show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event.
