Was Troy safe behind city walls? Is your business safe behind firewalls?

 

The answer is no and no. We all know the legend of the Trojan horse, where the Greeks gained access to Troy and won the war. Don't let your business become a modern day Troy. Today, in the cyber world, the threats are far more sophisticated than a wooden horse, so you need to be prepared. Exploring approaches to cybersecurity is the topic for this breakout panel at the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium.

The Sympsosium is less than a month away!  Register now, and avoid late fees!

Cybersecurity: New Approaches to Assessing and Maximizing Your Protection

 

SEC Commissioner Luis A. Aguilar has warned that boards that choose to ignore, or minimize the importance of cybersecurity oversight responsibility, do so at their own peril. But how does an organization assess its preparation for cybersecurity and improve its protection? The panelists in this session will describe approaches being adopted by leading organizations and research addressing the strategic, managerial, and operational issues concerning Cybersecurity. 

 

Stuart Madnick, SB '66, SM '69, PhD '72, MIT (IC)3 will moderate the panel including:

Stuart Madnick Roland Cloutier Shuman Ghosemajumder Nick Milne-Home George Wrenn
