Cyber Security covers a wide range of situations that at times may be difficult to address until trouble hits. Discussing the impact from security incidents that occur from poor security practices are even more difficult conversations. The phrase “If only I had done….” is echoed way too often. Being aware is our best defense. Douglas Bray will briefly discuss and define a selection of the threats: Intellectual Property Theft, Ransomware, Identity Theft, Corporate Wire Fraud, Embezzlement, and Corporate Network Breach. Doug will go into further depth with real case examples reflecting facts of the incident, resolution, solutions to prevent reoccurrence and available legal resources for a selection of these threats.

Our Speaker:

Doug received his Associates degree from Ivy Tech, received additional training from Data Tech Institute for computer repair and data recovery, and followed up with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. Prior to opening Bray Technologies, Doug honed his skills at several well recognized companies: Logo7, Bindley Western Drug, Software Alternatives Inc, Southwestern Bell Telecom and KLF business communications. His skill set of programming, computer networking, file servers, computer repair, data recovery as well as many other technology areas of expertise developed while working for these companies set the stage for opening Bray Technologies.

Doug is passionate about data recovery. He takes great satisfaction in recovering precious data for his clients. His efforts and focus in data recovery naturally progressed in to forensic endeavors. When the internet came alive to the general public in the 90’s, the need for firewalls and cyber security and qualified individuals to assist companies in setting the proper systems and protocols.
