October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and Hawaiian Telcom is presenting a free educational event for local businesses titled “Cybersecurity Trends You Need to Know.”
The world of cybersecurity can change in a nanosecond. The October 7 event will review what local experts are seeing and what businesses need to know to protect themselves.
“Our team is passionate about bringing people together and offering training and education to help them understand how to leverage technology to their best advantage,” said Marcus Yano, who will be kicking off the event. “Keeping up to date with what’s happening and with the available technology is a critical first step, especially in cybersecurity.”
Yano is Executive Director of Architecture and Cloud Services of CBTS, the consulting arm of Hawaiian Telcom’s parent company.
The virtual event will feature a general session led by Evan Horton, Senior Manager for Network Security Operations at Hawaiian Telcom. The general session will be followed by a choice of two workshops:
- What is Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and How to Prepare for it led by Jordan Silva, Senior Manager – Service Delivery
- Protecting Your Business Against Cyber Attacks led by Marc Masuno, Director – Professional Services and Cloud Architecture, and Michael Taratko, Principal Architect – Security
The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Thursday, October 7, 2021.
