Understand your risk, your risk tolerance ... and mitigate!”


Cynthia Kay, Owner and President, CK & Co., Grand Rapids

“Most organizations don’t have a cybersecurity crisis communication plan and when a breach occurs communication missteps can cost you dearly.”


Michael S. Melfi, J.D., MBA, Bodman Law, Ann Arbor

“In today’s economy, every institution holds data that is vital to the life and growth of its business. Staying updated in the ever-changing area of data privacy and security is made even harder by the reality that every company needs policies, practices, and agreements that fit their unique circumstances.”


Chad Paalman, CEO, NuWave Technology Partners, Grand Rapids

“Oh, the things we’ve seen … things that can and do happen to anyone! Monitoring and managing a healthy infrastructure is critical to securing digital assets, but when it comes to cybersecurity, humans are the weakest link.”
