When it comes to cyberattacks, it’s not if — but when. Is your business prepared to respond? This on-demand webinar in partnership with the International Franchise Association will help you strengthen your cyber defenses.

The best cyber defense starts with preparation. A risk assessment will uncover threats and help you develop solutions to protect your business. And a formal incident response plan (IRP) that’s been reviewed and tested can ensure everyone understands their responsibilities in the event of an incident. Finally, proper preparation for the latest release of PCI 4.0 will help your business maintain and attest to compliance.

Franchises carry a tremendous amount of cyber risk, which ultimately affects your bottom line, and your reputation. Your business is vulnerable at multiple entry points, including your POS systems and ecommerce platforms. The data your systems collect — from owners and staff, to clients and customers — is not only vulnerable, but vital information that fuels improved quality of service.

This on-demand webinar featuring Plante Moran cybersecurity experts will help you:

  • Understand cybersecurity threats and how they can affect your business.
  • Understand the importance of cyber risk assessment activities.
  • Implement management techniques to strengthen your compliance program.
