The future of the US and the world is with the Green Economy. Businesses are learning to be more profitable and help the environment by “Going Green.” The advances in technology has been huge in the last 10 years. Catch words like “IoT”, “Big Data”, “AI”, etc are all based on recent advances in computer technology and power. More and more our society is relying on hi-tech to simplify our lives, businesses, manufacturing, heck even how to order and get a pizza delivered. Unfortunately most of the innovations and high tech gadgets don’t properly address how we can be protected from being hacked and our information stolen. As the Green Economy continues to grow, it too is getting ahead of risk management and mitigation of their products and services. This presentation will focus on the guideline and self-audit that Green Companies can follow and perform to decrease the risk to their business. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a framework and guides to help address these deficiencies in normal and “Green” Companies.
