Enemies at the Gate: Responses to Data Security Threats Across Industries

The spate of recent security breaches at major institutions such as JPMorgan Chase, eBay, AT&T, Google, Apple, and The Home Depot has thrust into the spotlight the role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) as gatekeeper or warden of secrets. Now more than ever, CISOs are the front line of defense against foreign, domestic and internal forces capable of breaching even the most secure data server or device—a nightmare scenario made all the more real in an era of increased employee and business motility. This opening conversation welcomes CISOs from multiple industries and sectors who will share best practices and practical advice on how their respective organizations have worked tirelessly to avoid future attacks.

From Russia (and Asia) with Love: Cyber Warfare, Eurasian Incursions and the Growth of State-Sponsored Hacking (Breakout)

As the continuing fallout from Sony Pictures Entertainment’s data breach continues to percolate in the public consciousness, scrutiny over the escalating actions and sophisticated designs of Russian, Korean, and Chinese entities remains a top priority for law firms and clients alike. Concern over the enhanced capabilities of such organizations as Axiom, Anonymous, APT28 and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Unit 61398 – not to mention the alleged financial backing of these operations by their respective governments – has yielded a perfect storm of paranoia and sensationalism not easily overcome or digested. This discussion looks to dispel the mystery surrounding these threats by offering practical and earnest information for our audience.
