ALPHARETTA, GA – April 21, 2016 – InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology and security services, announced today that they are the gold sponsor of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) 2016 Cyber Security Simulation event. This year’s event, organized by TAG’s Information Security Society, will focus on how business leaders can leverage so-called Smart Cities to improve their businesses while still maintaining an effective response to cyber attacks. The event will be hosted on May 18 at Kennesaw State University.
“InterDev has long put security at the forefront of IT planning for all of our customers – from both the public and private sector,” said InterDev CEO Gary Nichols. “Creating more real-time opportunities for businesses to experience the potential threats of a cyber-attack is critical to helping them prepare. We’re thrilled to align with TAG in support of this important initiative.”
The TAG 2016 Cyber Security Simulation event is an all-day, open business continuity simulation: a role playing event where C-Level executives, senior management and security practitioners come together and “react” to a staged business-impacting cyber attack.
The focus of the 2016 event will be how business leaders can leverage Smart Cities to improve our businesses while still maintaining an effective response to cyber-attacks. The attack on critical infrastructure, will challenge participants and showcase the attack impacting the business, technical and legal response.
Attendees will experience realistic cyber-attack scenarios without the risk associated with an actual event. The specific attacks will be against a fictional company but attendees will come away with plenty of lessons and best practices learned that you can bring back to your company to improve your security.
