Cybersecurity Leadership When it Matters Most

June 11, 2018
9:05am - 9:50am
Grand Ballroom

Commander Kirk Lippold, U.S. Navy  (Ret.) was the commanding officer of the USS Cole when it came under a suicide terrorist attack by al Qaeda in the port of Aden, Yemen. During his command, Commander Lippold and his crew distinguished themselves by saving the American war ship from sinking. This event is widely recognized as one of the most brazen acts of terrorism by al Qaeda prior to September 11, 2001.

Commander Lippold is a crisis management expert and proven leader, and in this opening keynote, tailored to the needs of healthcare security professionals, he shares with attendees lessons learned while leading his crew aboard the USS Cole following the attack.

These critical steps demonstrate how any organization can detect, react to contain and then control crises, assess progress in defining a new normal, and measure successes moving forward. 

These leadership and management techniques will arm attendees with a military-grade approach to prepare for and take action when cyber terrorists strike — because it’s not a matter of if, but when.
