From Risk to Resilience - The Global Mission to Secure Cyber Security

September 11, 2017
9:05am - 10:00am
Grand Ballroom

Organizations of all types today face a daily and growing assault from nation states, lone actors and organized crime. The assailants target everything from trade secrets to proprietary information to reputation damage to critical infrastructure and financial systems. The effects are as far-reaching, disruptive and consequential as physical attacks, and can make or break organizations that are not sufficiently prepared.

How can an organization embed cybersecurity into its suite of core business functions?

How can we better protect our globally interdependent systems?

What are the rules of engagement for world leaders, and what are the consequences for their foes?

In this presentation, one of the world’s most notable security experts, Tom Ridge, the first secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, brings the priorities of cybersecurity into perspective as only an internationally respected leader can. The evolution of cybersecurity strategy and diplomacy, what to expect from the next generation of cyber attacks and how to navigate it all mark this compelling, insightful presentation of a growing and global 21st century threat.
