Learn from those who have been there

Has your organization been attacked? Until it has, you can only plan for what to do. But what is your plan? Michael Daugherty and Doug Meal took LabMD from the claws of the FTC by fighting back and winning in court.


We're not here to share dirty laundry. We're here to learn what to do when it happens.

Company culture must include cyber security

A day of cyber security understanding

For too long, cyber security has been pinned on the back of IT security and CISO leaders and personnel. Yes, it's their primary focus, but every organization must instill cyber security into its corporate culture.

We'll help you gain a solid understanding of what a cyber culture looks like.

Experience the adrenaline of a cyber attack

Until you've been there, you haven't been there. Our experts will take each group of executives through a staged cyber attack, and put the pressure on you to understand what you must do. And what you can and cannot do.

You'll be out of your comfort zone, learning and doing and understanding new facets of what to do in the face of a cyber security incident.

The Cyber Security Learning Place for ALL Executives


Organizations often treat potential breaches as a technical problem, not a cultural, broad-ranging business problem that can impact almost every aspect of a business.  From downtime to loss/theft of data to revenue and stock price fluctuations, the boardroom must now be wide awake, expecting all executives to be fully prepared, digital leaders.

Cyber Security is about culture, team-building and eliminating the silos – preparing executives for what is already viewed as an inevitable event, for what can be a surprising inevitable outcome.

You will experience time well spent, achieving:

  • Communication that truly connects, both internally and externally
  • Collaborating at the executive level
  • Building mutually beneficial peer relationships outside of your organization, even with your competitors
  • Learning from the past mistakes/failures of others

A true first for Atlanta’s business executive leadership (Legal, HR, IT, PR/Marketing, Board Members), the Cyber Education Foundation is hosting this full-day workshop on what it takes to be prepared for a cybersecurity-related crisis and increasing regulatory oversight.  Here, you will be generously coached by top business, government, and legal minds as they share deep insights into successes, failures, and what it will mean to you and your organization in the coming years.

Here's the agenda

You will hear about the LabMD case, conflicting standards and tactics, and how you’re supposed to satisfy so many masters.
