Cybersecurity has evolved from the server room to the boardroom. It is now a top concern for CEOs around the world, & for good reason. Attackers are motivated, whether by money or politics, & have access to unprecedented computing power & increasingly sophisticated tools & techniques. They are quicker, smarter, & don't play by the rules.
As leaders in this space, we need to adapt to win. We need to pivot from a Peacetime to Wartime mindset. We need to stop asking, "Are we secure?" & start asking, "Are we ready?"
This panel discussion between seasoned wartime experts from the military, intelligence, law enforcement, public, & private sectors will cover:
How recent changes in the regulatory environment impact your strategy & execution
How to prepare for the inevitable breach
How to work your board & peers to manage priorities so that you can get critical projects done
How to respond in the aftermath
Panelists will share their real-world experiences in the field, offering advice on how to be prepared & the costs & consequences of not sufficiently prioritizing this preparation. Attendees will leave with a firm understanding of the importance of having company defenses in place, training like you fight, & collaborating with law enforcement to achieve better cyber-attack outcomes & greater homeland security.
Jennifer Gold - President & Board Chair, New York Metro InfraGard
Rich Richard - Chief of Cybersecurity, CISA
Colin Ahern - Chief Cyber Officer, State of New York
& more to come!
