Cybercrime costs businesses and non-profits billions of dollars annually in theft, fraud, embezzlement and other losses. While breaches of high-profile targets like Sony, Anthem, Target and JPMorgan Chase make the news, it’s small and medium-sized organizations that are most at risk. Statistics show that 30% of cybercrime victims are small organizations and that 60% of them go out-of-business within 6 months of being attacked. Other statistics show that as many as 80% of these crimes did not need to happen.

Dr. Stahl is a pioneer in the field of information security, having entered the field in 1980.  Earlier in his career he secured teleconferencing at the White House, databases inside Cheyenne Mountain and the communications network controlling our nuclear weapons arsenal.
