Big Data and Cyber Security: New Tools and Approaches to Increase Resiliency

October 22, 2015

Boards of directors and senior executives are laser focused on big data and cyber threats. A recent study by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) reports that 75 percent of corporate directors want to understand more about technology risk. 

Year-to-date alone, the computer systems of  The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times were breached by hackers. In addition, The Washington State Administrative Office of the Court’s website was penetrated exposing hundreds of thousands of driver’s license numbers. The highly publicized international cyber “cash-out scheme” resulted in the withdrawal of $45 million from ATMs around the world in a matter of hours.

Traditional security technologies used—currently representing 80 percent of most company security budgets—have been rendered useless in defending companies against attacks by a new generation of stealthy criminals. Big data related attacks outsmart company firewalls and often blend into the background noise of company operations. With web-based applications, social networks, and interconnected systems, every company is becoming heavily reliant on big data— and vulnerable. The time is now for companies to create a rigorous set of defense solutions.

The Center for Risk Management invites you to join your peers and subject matter experts for a full day of executive dialogue to prepare for and protect against big data security threats. This one day program offers companies new solutions for devising a next-generation defense system against cyber-attacks.  Learn how to best transition to a comprehensive, intelligence-driven system that employs big data in collecting, monitoring, and reporting security threats.
