Ransomware and the Rise of Cybersecurity Insurance

12:15PM – 1:15PM

Location: The Terrace (33rd floor)

Securing Critical Infrastructure

Internet connected systems are vulnerable to attack 24/7 from anywhere in the world and the economic disruption caused by a successful attack on critical infrastructure means that controlling systems are the main target for attackers. The cost and complexity of industrial control systems used to operate critical infrastructure have extremely long lifespans meaning that the security mechanisms might not have been included or accounted for. Organizations need to be aware of the risks within CI and have the toolkit necessary to defend and mitigate against attacks.

1:15PM – 2:00PM

2:00PM – 3:00PM

Manufacturing 4.0: What’s Next for Cybersecurity

  • Vincent M. Voci, Cyber Policy Director, Cyber, Intelligence, and Security Division, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

    Cyber risk continues to be a front-of-mind issue for businesses of all stripes, and the incessant pace of new breaches and the resulting string of regulations ensure that this will be the case for the foreseeable future. While once viewed in terms of absolutes, more companies are looking at cyber risk management along a continuum of risk and reward and are deploying time-proven methods of quantitative risk management to the cyber problem.  This session will discuss developments in the world of regulation and enforcement, as well as the way in which quantitative methods can be used to measure, predict, and mitigate risk in the uncertain world of cyber security.
