Topic: Preparing a proactive strategy and plan for Ransomware
Facilitator: Dr. Eric Cole, Founder and CEO, Secure Anchor
Abstract: Ransomware attacks are rapidly increasing in frequency and cost. According to security experts ransomware will be a $20 billion industry by 2021, with an attack happening every 11 seconds. Organizations victimized by these attacks can lose access to their networks and data, incur steep financial losses, and suffer significant reputation damage.
Join us for a forward-looking conversation about the evolution of ransomware, what we expect to see as threats continue to thrive in remote work environments and what cybersecurity measures your organization can take to mitigate the risk of ransomware attacks.

August, 14th: 3:00 PM Eastern: Roundtable Option 2
Topic: Battling the effects of COVID, the CISO’s effort to secure the remote workforce
Facilitator: Dr. Shawn P. Murray, C|CISO, CISSP, CRISC, FITSP-A, Principal Scientist & Senior Cyber Security Professional, Northrop Grumman
Abstract: There has been an emerging focus on helping organizations pivot to an online and remote collaborative workforce. In what many are referring to as phase one of the pandemic, we saw businesses adopting technology to make the immediate transition without considering the security implications of executing the strategy. Remote access applications like Zoom introduced privacy and vulnerability challenges that resulted in data loss and unauthorized disclosures. While many have recovered from phase one and have settled on the new norm of conducting business, we have seen a 900% increase in cyber scams, malware, ransomware and misinformation campaigns. The CISO now must work with HR and executive management to communicate and solve challenges related to cyber security awareness and reeducate the workforce in ways that help the organization better manage risks in these areas. We will discuss new learned experiences and methods that have been implemented to address the issues.
