Manufacturing 4.0: What’s Next for Cyber Security

  • 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.
