THE WOODLANDS, TX – The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership (EDP) held a special morning event sponsored by Wright Business Technologies on Thursday, October 5, 2023. Jim Parisi, EDP Chairman and North Market President of St. Luke’s Health moderated the discussion on cybersecurity, in which partners and guests heard from George Reeves, Cybersecurity Advisor with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Stephen Wright, Founder and President of Wright Business Technologies.
Our panel of experts shared insight and advice that would be helpful to business leaders before, during and after a cybersecurity event targeted at small and midsize business organizations. The group also learned more about the work being done by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Gil Staley, CEO of The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership said, “It was a privilege to host an expert panel discussion on cybersecurity, providing valuable insights for our local business leaders. In our interconnected world, cybersecurity isn’t an option; it’s an imperative. It’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ you’ll face threats, but rather ‘how’ prepared you are to protect your business.”
