October is Cyber Crime Prevention Month: It seems that every few months the media reports 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 about $8 million. The Federal government spent over $15 billion on cybercrime prevention, however by 2023 it's estimated that over half of all cybercrimes (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 cybercrime and what companies can do to reduce mitigate their risks. Our panel of experts will discuss current cybercrime techniques, as well as how businesses can protect their company and customer information. They will also talk future exploited weaknesses, cybercrime techniques, and what businesses can do now to prevent future risks.
