Executive Speaker Series: The Future of Cyber Crimes and Security
Our panel of experts discuss the future of cyber crime and what companies can do to mitigate their risks.
October is Cyber Crime Prevention Month. Every few months the media reports major security breaches affecting large and small companies, as well as the private information of millions of individuals. It typically takes U.S. businesses 196 days to discover a security breach, and on average it costs them about $8 million to deal with the aftermath. Although the federal government spends over $15 billion on cyber crime prevention each year, experts estimate that by 2023 more than half of all cyber crimes globally -- some 33 billion stolen records -- will occur in the U.S.
The purpose of this panel is to bring together business leaders to discuss the future of cyber crime and what companies can do to mitigate their risks. Our panel of experts will discuss current and anticipated future cyber crime techniques, as well as how businesses can protect their company and customer information.
