A few of the dates have passed, but some may still be available in useful locations to you and your organization. BEC is huge and growing, targeting law firms, financial institutions, businesses of all types and sizes… Having attended last year’s (smaller-scale) briefing at the Washington Field Office, this was a worthy event with the latest information on techniques used and advice to combat it.
