ABOUT THE CYBERSECURITY WORKSHOP FOR TODAY’S STRATEGIC LEADERS
Despite the ongoing cyber threat that is witnessed through news reports almost on a daily basis, firms are still neglecting proper cybersecurity planning. As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet of Things applications progressively widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, a recent study from security solutions provider Resilient Systems and market research firm Ponemon broke down key areas of continued failure for organizations.

The study found that 66% of IT and security professionals surveyed said their firms were unprepared to recover from a cyber attack, and 75% lacked a formal incident response plan. A key example of this unpreparedness is that fact that many of the companies impacted by the WannaCry ransomware attack had not installed patches in their Windows infrastructure that were released by Microsoft months before. Vulnerabilities in commercial software are common; the only solution is to stay abreast of manufacturer’s releases.

In order to help businesses in their cybersecurity planning, the Cybersecurity Framework released in February 2014 following a collaborative process involving industry, academia and government has been widely adopted by many types of organizations around the world, quickly becoming the de facto standard by which cyber security is going to be measured.

GLDNAcademy.com’s The Cybersecurity Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will bring leaders up to speed on the most recent and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors. Attendees to the program will learn how to apply the Cybersecurity Framework in their organizations and erect strong defenses for their valuable customer and employee data and intellectual property.

How the Cybersecurity Framework Helps your Company at Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), forum that will bring the latest thinking from security experts to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises’ information assets.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014

New York City, NY, USA (November 4, 2014) — A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, says Bill Buchanan, The Conversation. Computer security relies on a great number of links, hardware, software and something else altogether: you. The greatest threat to information security is actually people. Why strive to defeat encrypted passwords stored in computers, when those computers’ human users will turn them over willingly?

A huge problem with most types of digital communications, processing and storage is that it’s often very difficult to differentiate between a true communication and one which has been falsified. This stems largely from the internet’s background as an open, insecure system. In emails apparently from legitimate websites, the email address of the sender can be spoofed, that is, replaced with another that is not the sender’s actual address, as some email relay systems allow this.

Corporations are today targeted as never before, with growth in hacking attacks linked to nation states and overseas governments; in fact, sophisticated and sustained campaigns of phishing have succeeded in stealing information from firms and organizations all over the world. Symantec recorded a 62% rise in data breaches from spear phishing in 2013.

In response to the growing cyber threat, the Cybersecurity Framework, which was drafted by the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), represents a tipping point in the evolution of cybersecurity, one in which the balance is shifting to proactive risk-management standards. While its application is voluntary, organizations across industries may gain significant benefits by adopting the guidelines.

Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today’s enterprises to learn more about the Cybersecurity Framework and how to apply it to their organization. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2014 will discuss include:

• Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
• Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
• Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
• How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
• Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
• Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
• Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States

About Cyber Security World Conference 2014
Cyber security is never again a term to ignore for individuals or corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country’s global economic prominence and worldwide security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Unfortunately, the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing exorbitantly high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America’s largest commercial bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cyber attack in one of the most sweeping known global breaches. The company said the unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to almost two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.

Renowned information security experts and innovative service providers will present at Cyber Security World Conference 2014 their latest thinking to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises and governmental agencies.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014 is produced by Golden Networking, the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to information@goldennetworking.com.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014 to Build on Obama’s Cyber Threat Information Sharing Framework Against Global Hacker Attacks

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking presents Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), forum that will bring the latest thinking from security experts to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises and government’s information assets.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014

New York City, NY, USA (November 1, 2014) — According to The Hill, the Obama administration’s recently issued cyber threat information sharing framework comes at a time when discussions are heating up in Congress on stalled legislation dealing with cyber security. Why lawmakers and law enforcement officials have been pounding the pavement in recent weeks, declaring that steps to ease the sharing of information about cyber threats are critical for the country’s defenses, will be discussed at Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), unique professional gathering where cybersecurity experts are set to illustrate business on protecting their information from cyber-attacks.

The document fills a gap in the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s more general cybersecurity framework, released on February 12, 2014. The framework, created through collaboration between industry and government, consists of standards, guidelines, and practices to promote the protection of critical infrastructure. The prioritized, flexible, repeatable, and cost-effective approach of the framework helps owners and operators of critical infrastructure to manage cybersecurity-related risk.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community C³ Voluntary Program helps align critical infrastructure owners and operators with existing resources that will assist their efforts to adopt the Cybersecurity Framework and manage their cyber risks. NIST also issued a companion roadmap that discusses NIST’s next steps with the Framework and identifies key areas of cybersecurity development, alignment, and collaboration.

Roadblocks to total implementation still remain though, as both industry and privacy groups have been hesitant to freely share information in the current legal landscape. One bill that would address the legal issues is the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), but it remains unclear whether the bill could see action in the lame-duck session after the elections, according to The Hill. Absent congressional action, businesses are concerned about whether they will be protected from liability when sharing information with the government. Conversely, privacy advocates are wary of what personal data industries might share with the government, given the surveillance activities that have been revealed at the National Security Agency (NSA).
