Packers to host cyber security session for local businesses at Lambeau

The Green Bay Packers are working with the FBI to help fight cyber crime.  Next month, Lambeau Field will play host to FBI Special Agent Byron Franz for a presentation to local businesses.  The presentation is part of the Packers Mentor-Protégé Program.

The presentation is to be held on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 8 a.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium.   According to a release, Agent Franz will focus on protecting Wisconsin businesses from cyber and insider threats, and any area business interested in the topic is welcome to attend.

The FBI estimates that the theft of intellectual property, or business secrets, may cost the U.S. up to $400 billion a year. Special Agent Franz will suggest best practices for the detection and mitigation of malicious insiders and cyber intrusion actors who target corporate computer networks and portable electronic devices. He will highlight the importance of fostering public-private partnerships in combating these threats.
