Security Compensation – How to Invest In Startup Security

Security consultants Chris Grayson and Austin Whipple from Bishop Fox will present on April 23rd for Atlanta Tech Village on securing a startup. They will share resources and knowledge about where to start when planning how to most effectively secure a small business.

Their presentation will cover technical guides on securing applications, networks, data, as well as business-level decisions that can help reduce risk. This talk will cover best practices for security and risk management that are inexpensive and easy to implement early on in organizational development –but grow more difficult to change after an organization matures.

Come hear stories from real-world hackers that explain what works and what doesn’t so that everyone walks away with a better plan for preventing a security breach.

RSVP Here!
