Membership Workshop

Must-Have IT and Cybersecurity Compliance 101


There’s been a lot of talk about “Cybersecurity” but most people / business owners don’t fully understand where Day to Day IT stops and where Cybersecurity starts. Cybersecurity is often related to “GRC” which stands for Governance, Risk and Compliance. Compliance is an enormous and intimidating topic that can be much better understood if taught the basics first.


In this session, Danny Mizrahi, Founder and CEO of Contango IT, Co-Founder and Managing Director of GRSee, is going to break down the basics of Cybersecurity and Compliance. To do so we need to first understand IT Best Practices and “Must-Haves” for any business of any size, and how it relates to Cybersecurity Compliance 101. By doing so, your business could kill two birds with one stone, making sure your business is safe and secure while also being prepared for the eventual Compliance issues that will inevitably come up as your business grows and you go after bigger clients. Some topics will include:


Easily Achievable IT “Must-Haves” for your Business

  • Security Awareness Training, Spoofing/Phishing
  • Advanced/Basic Multi-Factor Authentication
  • Encryption (Messaging, Hardware, Data)
  • Ownership/Control/Monitoring/Maintenance of Software/Hardware
