Session Title: Security is Everybody's Business!
Chris Blessington, Senior Director of Marketing, ExtraHop Networks
Andrew Dolan, Member Services Manager, Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center
Deborah Snyder, Deputy Chief Information Security Officer, Information Technology Services, New York State
Session Details: Cyber security is the new front line of financial crime and social upheaval. It is the new Wild West, with hackers divided among the "white hats" and "black hats." Stage coach and bank robberies of old have been replaced by heists of personally identifiable information from major retailers, insurers, and governments. Political protests are increasingly taking the form of denial-of-service attacks by so-called "hacktivists" to disrupt the normal order of things. Such things can and do happen anywhere, and everybody has a role in preventing, preparing for, and responding to cyber threats. This interactive session unpacks key lessons and learnings from real-life cases with the help of a panel of experts and engaged audience members.
When: Wednesday, September 2, 10:30 AM ET
Where: Hilton Albany, Albany, New York
