GovSec Joins President Obama and Top Business Leaders in the Fight Against Cyberterrorists
As the media reminds us every day, the threat of cyberterrorism and cybercrime to our technical infrastructure is a growing national security threat. In fact, President Obama recently met with CEOs of America’s leading corporations to address this problem.
Whether stemming from foreign governments, organized crime or terrorist organizations, computers and servers in the United States are the most aggressively targeted information systems in the world. Attacks are increasing in severity, frequency and sophistication each year as our nation’s critical infrastructure grows more reliant on information technologies. Our systems have become more exposed to attackers, both foreign and domestic, and these attacks threaten our economy, public works, communication systems and computer networks.
It is especially critical that government organizations be at the tip of the spear when it comes to combating this threat. That is why GovSec, the nation’s premier event for Government, Homeland Security and Law Enforcement professionals, taking place May 13-15, 2013 in Washington, D.C., will feature special educational programming to provide answers to help organizations defend against cyberterrorists. The Cybercrime & Cyberterrorists sessions at GovSec are designed to inform attendees on the latest insights into the world of cybersecurity and will provide an understanding of the nature and source of these attacks as well as how to protect against them.
Some of the topics that will be covered in these sessions include:
- Social Media Security: Leveraging Social Networking While Mitigating Risk
- You Drop the (Cyber) Bomb on Me: A Primer on Cyber Warfare Tools & Techniques
- The Evolving Role of Cyber
- BYOD Security, Case Studies on the Use of Electronic Social Media in Political Dissent
- The BYOA (Bring-your-own-App) Floodgates Have Opened & the Government Must Learn to Swim and more.
