Title: Protecting Assets in the Age of Cybersecurity Leaks and Scandals: How to Plan When Risk is a Moving Target

Description:

Reports of cybersecurity leaks—and major scandals—have dominated headlines for years. These days, it isn’t an IT manager answering for security breaches, it’s CEOs and business owners. Do you have a comprehensive plan in place to protect your most important assets? If something goes wrong, how will you react, put out fires, and recover lost trust? Have you considered the consequences of information falling into the wrong hands in 10, 20, 30, or 40 years? Tarah Wheeler is an engineer who went from the keyboard to leading the world’s top red teams and data privacy teams. An offensive security researcher, she is currently the Cybersecurity Policy Fellow at New America, leading a new international cybersecurity project. She is an inaugural contributing cybersecurity expert for the Washington Post, and a Foreign Policy contributor on cyber warfare. In this talk, she brings depth, warmth, and sparkling humor to an otherwise complex, but necessary, subject. From cryptocurrency to how the Internet of Things might provide a gateway to hackers, and absorbing how a robust cybersecurity plan operates to covering security at live events, Wheeler offers a razor-sharp breakdown of what you need to know—and do—to protect yourself, your partners, and your clients. Ms. Wheeler will be introduced by Brigadier General Stefanie Horvath, current leader of enterprise service delivery for the state of Minnesota. After her presentation, the General and Ms. Wheeler will lead a lively Q&A session drawn from their very different vantage points related to cybersecurity.
