HOUSTON, TX – September 13th 2016 – With cyber-criminals AND government surveillance getting more sophisticated and sinister, it is more an important than ever for business-owners to ensure that reliable and secure mechanisms of data protection are in place. Individuals who attempt to illegally access a business data system have one goal: to rob organizations of as much confidential information as possible in order to hurt the financial health of the organization or obtain secrets not otherwise accessible without breaching measures of confidentiality.
The team at CITOC is always looking for ways to highlight important IT issues in engaging and meaningful ways. That’s why they’ve decided to host a screening of Snowden – Hollywood’s take on Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing on over-zealous NSA surveillance. Whether he’s labeled a hero or traitor, there is no doubt that Snowden opened the eyes of millions of Americans on how heavily we rely on technology and who may or may not be watching.
CITOC CEO, BJ Farmer, is excited to be using the movie premiere as an opportunity to remind business-owners that cyber security must always be on the top of the IT agenda. ““Like him or not, Snowden made us all aware that Big Brother is watching and that data security should never be taken for granted.” Farmer claims. “We want to use this timely event to drive the point home: businesses need to proactively and continually be vigilant in the fight against cyber criminals and over-zealous government surveillance.”
This invitation-only screening will take place this Friday, September 16th 2016 in Houston. The film will be accompanied by a very special presentation that will demonstrate just how vulnerable business data is to any kind of cyber-invasion, be it by criminals or government bodies. Businesses and individuals who wish to RSVP can get more information and full registration details by contacting CITOC directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’d like to connect your business-minded audience with more information about the critical importance of cyber-security and how CITOC can help, please don’t hesitate to contact BJ Farmer to arrange an interview. A quick discussion about cyber-security with BJ can help keep your audience informed and vigilant against cybercrime and internet surveillance.
