Webcast overview

A shortage of cyber-talent. Growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) by hackers. Fraud and “phishing”—old fashioned, but still highly effective. Heightened expectations—and reputational and legal risks—related to data protection and privacy. These and other cyber challenges are driving a sharper focus—across the business and in the boardroom—on the risks and opportunities posed by the evolving cyber security landscape. Join us as we discuss KPMG’s “Cyber security considerations for 2019” with Fred Rica and Charlie Jacco, KPMG Cyber Security Services Principals.

There will be 1.0 continuing professional education (CPE) credit available to U.S. participants who participate in the live Webcast and meet the eligibility requirements. The Webcast will last approximately one hour.

After registering for this event, you will receive Webcast log-in instructions (or dial-in for audio-only participation).
