By Annemarie Franczyk – Contributing writer

Protecting and securing the data of your business should be a top-down, organization-wide responsibility that is reinforced by consistent education and training.

Such an approach will help to prevent the hacks and breaches that increasingly are threatening the digital property of companies of every size, everywhere.

Three Buffalo-area experts discussed strategies to achieve cybersecurity during a recent virtual Executive Forum hosted by Business First Buffalo.

Panelists were:

• Jennifer Beckage, attorney and founder, Beckage law firm

• William Prohn, managing director, Dopkins & Co. LLC

• David Wolf, vice president, Just Solutions Inc.
