Edgar Perez Leading Cybersecurity Workshop for CEOs in NYC, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta & Sydney

Edgar Perez brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, seminars in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo that are specifically designed for board members, senior executives and entrepreneurial business professionals looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage in one of the most critical subjects for corporations and governments worldwide.

Workshop

New York City, NY, USA (August 28, 2015) — The extramarital affair website Ashley Madison has been served with a US $578 million lawsuit following a breach that resulted in data concerning 39 million of its members being leaked online, including usernames, messages and email and home addresses. Furthermore, it was recently disclosed by Gizmodo editor-in-chief Annalee Newitz that most of the female accounts were fake. The official numbers from the site showed that 31 million of the accounts belonged to men while 5 million supposedly were linked to females. However, Newitz found that 10,000 accounts were created with the ashleymadison.com email, implying that they were test subscriptions. Nine thousand of those 10,000 belonged to women, while the remaining numbers were either categorized as male or no gender specified.

Firms like Avid Dating Life and Avid Media, the Toronto-based companies that run Ashley Madison, now begin to view cyber attacks as existential threats to their survival; ignoring cyber security issues can have the most dangerous and lasting consequences for global and local corporations. They join now an ever growing list of large companies that have suffered high-profile cyber security breaches that include Adobe, ADP, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.cybersecurityboardroomworkshop.com), How Boards of Directors and CXOs Can Build the Proper Foundation to Address Today’s Information Security Challenges, is specifically designed for boards of directors and CEOs of public and private firms looking for new ways to gain and maintain their competitive advantages. Business executives with responsibility for IT, finance, compliance, risk management and procurement as well as entrepreneurs and innovators are welcome to add their points of view to the debate.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is a must-attend forum for board members, CEOs, CFOs, COOs and executive managers in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo who need to become more educated about cyber security in order to ask questions that are strategic yet granular enough to address company specifics. Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is targeted at corporate decision-makers for whom cybersecurity readiness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

The presenter is a published author, business consultant for billion-dollar private equity and hedge funds and Council Member at the Gerson Lehrman Group, with subject matter expertise in cybersecurity, investing, trading, financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Act) and market structure.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 to Bring Critical Cyber Security Lessons for Boards and CEOs

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful workshops, Golden Networking brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.CybersecurityBoardroomWorkshop.com), seminar specifically designed for board members and senior executives of public and private firms looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop

New York, NY, USA (January 20, 2015) — In the days prior to Thanksgiving 2013, malware designed to steal credit card data at Target was surreptitiously installed. According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, the company had installed a malware detection tool. Target had specialists in Bangalore to monitor its computers around the clock. Two days after Thanksgiving, the malware was spotted. The team in India got an alert and flagged Target’s security managers. And then?

Nothing happened. Target’s alert system had worked effectively. But then, Target stood by as 40 million credit card numbers flowed out of its computers. Only a few months later, CEO Gregg Steinhafel and CIO Beth Jacob were both out of the company.

Cybersecurity has become widely recognized as a critical corporate challenge. Boards and senior managements are putting it on their agenda, categorizing cybersecurity not as a compartmentalized risk for the information technology team, but as strategic and enterprise-wide.

However, a security program is only as strong as its weakest link. While a survey by the Institute of Internal Auditors found 58% of board members felt they should be actively involved in cybersecurity preparedness, only 14% said they were actively involved. Unfortunately, 65% also said their perception of the risk their organizations faced had increased.

Board members and senior managers need to become more educated about the topic to be able to ask questions that are strategic yet granular enough to address company-specifics. To go further, it will be imperative to join Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.CybersecurityBoardroomWorkshop.com), the first seminar targeted at strategic and executive leaders for whom cybersecurity readiness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is specifically designed for board members and senior executives of public and private firms looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage.

Cyber Security World Conference 2015

New York, NY, USA (January 8, 2015) — Morgan Stanley joined a growing list of prominent corporate brands to suffer a data breach, after it revealed one of his financial advisors stole the information of as many as 350,000 wealth management clients, and that some of the data was posted online for sale.

Google’s Top-ranked Cyber Security Conference to Bring Key Insights for CISOs Facing Cyber Threats

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings 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’ information assets.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014

New York, NY, USA (November 18, 2014) — When pro-democracy protests erupted in Hong Kong in September, cyber attacks aimed at compromising protesters’ mobile phones soon followed. Spread through links in pro-Hong Kong e-mail messages, the mobile remote access tool (mRAT) gave the group behind the attack, the most obvious suspect being the Chinese government, almost total access to the device and its data. Two weeks later, similar espionage attacks were found hidden on compromised websites of organizations supporting the democratic movement.

The attack on Hong Kong citizens underscores the degree to which governments have taken to programs typically associated with hackers and cybercriminals. In fact, our reliance on these technologies has left us open to a variety of threats, says the Georgia Institute of Technology. Cybercriminals continue to compromise users’ computers and are increasingly turning their attention to mobile devices. In addition, online thieves have aimed their tools at larger prey, resulting in a string of large data breaches at well-known companies, such as Target, Home Depot, and JPMorgan Chase.

Indeed, J.P. Morgan Chase, America’s largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced a few months ago that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. The bank said the unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to 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.

Cyber security is therefore no longer a term to ignore for neither individuals nor corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country’s economic prominence and global security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Yet the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy overall.

Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distil their latest thinking for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today’s enterprises. Cyber security experts will discuss topics such as protecting individuals and companies against cyber-attacks, biometrics as the future of security, risks brought by mobile computing, and protecting corporate and national infrastructure against foreign attacks.

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
• 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 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).

About Cyber Security World Conference 2014

Cybersecurity 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 cyberattack 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.

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. Topics that will be discussed include:

• Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
• Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
• Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
• Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
• Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States

Mr. Edgar Perez

New York City, NY, USA (October 21, 2014) — According to Reuters, China’s top diplomat told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry that resuming cyber security cooperation between China and the United States would be difficult because of “mistaken U.S. practices”. Yang Jiechi, a state councilor overseeing foreign affairs, told Kerry in Boston the United States “should take positive action to create necessary conditions for bilateral cyber security dialogue and cooperation to resume”, according to a statement seen on the Chinese Foreign Ministry website on Sunday. “Due to mistaken U.S. practices, it is difficult at this juncture to resume Sino-U.S. cyber security dialogue and cooperation.”
