August Marquee Monday to Hold Cybersecurity Panel Discussion

The Cobb Chamber will welcome Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, Director of Georgia Bureau of Investigation Vic Reynolds, and Partner at Freeman Mathis & Gary, John Ghose, at its August Marquee Monday luncheon, to share their expertise on the realistic threat of cyber attacks for businesses. The August Marquee Monday is on August 9, 2021 at the Coca-Cola Roxy Theatre, presented by Superior Plumbing.

One of the biggest lessons from the recent attack on the Colonial Pipeline is that every business – large and small – is vulnerable to cyber threats, extortions, and attacks. As three of Georgia’s leading authorities on cybersecurity, the panel will cover:

  • Legal ramifications and requirements for a business if it is attacked
  • Attacks that are currently happening in the state
  • Steps your business should take if attacked
  • How to protect your business from falling under attack- cybersecurity insurance

In addition to cybersecurity panel discussion, the Cobb Chamber’s Cobb Young Professionals will present the 2021 Next Generation Award to two outstanding young professionals.

Registration is now open through August 4 for the August Marquee Monday. Tickets are $35 for Cobb Chamber members and $40 for non-members. Attendees may register for the event at www.cobbchamber.org/events.
