“Cyber attacks are the most menacing threat organizations face today.”

Everyday law enforcement agencies shut down businesses because their computing systems have been turned into attack weapons , critical infrastructure shut down and highly sensitive information stolen by cyber criminals costing organizations millions. The FBI says the average time a security breach goes undetected is 320 days. Accept the fact that cyber criminals who are determined are likely to succeed.

The very good news is not all breaches have to have disastrous outcomes. This is a time for organizational vigilance and resilience.  Join the CEO of Blue Lance Umesh Verma and other cyber security experts that make up the Greater Houston Partnership’s Cyber Security Task Force at the STATE OF CYBER SECURITY Preserving Business Vitality event on November 1, 2013 at the Doubletree by Hilton Downtown,  400 Dallas Street, Houston, TX 77002.

The Task Force is composed of leading experts across multiple industries including consulting, education, energy, finance, and real estate, healthcare information technology legal and the public sector. Attendees will receive information on how to minimize easy access and detect breaches early before they become costly attacks across all industries. The panel will provide policy guidance to executive leadership and proven techniques to security and  IT professionals in the following areas:

  • Industry specific business or regulatory drivers for information security
  • Roles within the organization and responsibilities for personnel implementing, executing and validating assets are secured
  • Industry specific considerations, guidelines and recommendations on detection and containment techniques and strategies
