Cyber Security and the Live Event Promoter/Planner

As live event producers  in what ever field: concerts, festivals, meetings/conventions, nonprofit special events, trade shows or sports events,  we are becoming more and more dependent on our electronic communications.  We use them before, during and post event.  We are becoming more dependent running the day to day operations of our companies or nonprofits.  We have our PCs, Tablets, Smart Phones, I Pads , thumb drives etc.

We are more vulnerable than ever and many of us do not have an adequate  plan in place or dedicate enough time to educate ourselves;  let alone work the plan on a regular basis.  Hackers and Black Hats do not just go after the large organizations, who often have sophisticated IT departments in place.  They find the little guys have more vulnerabilities and are easier to hack.  What would you do if a hacker breached your financial records and how would you know?  What would you do if someone stole your member, vendor or client information?  Do you know that you are legally liable to safeguard this information?

October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, but the bad guys may not wait until then so I have assembled some sites to help you:

  • Become aware of the hazards and vulnerabilities
  • How to make a plan and work it
  • How to handle a breach and how to report it
