As your company grows, you are challenged with countless items that utilize the most finite resource: time. With less time available, it is imperative to have the proper financial controls in place. In this session, we will discuss how properly structuring your financial control environment will help mitigate the risk of financial impropriety and review examples of what can happen when the proper controls are not in place.

The cost of insurance, specifically employee benefits, is quickly becoming a top 5 expense for most companies. What if there was a way to escape the volatility of the traditional employee health insurance market… a means to take control of your insurance program and strategically manage your risk with potential for significant financial gain? Come and hear more about how the health insurance landscape is changing and what you can do about it.

What is the cost to your business when you lose data? What if that data is not just lost, but stolen? And what if that data is protected data? These are all questions that leaders of businesses of all sizes and across all industries have to ask themselves. This session will review the current cybersecurity landscape affecting many SMBs, how risk, governance, and compliance affects your business, and ways that you can manage attacks against your business and customer data.
