Are You Cyber Ready? Cybersecurity Talk and Open House

Date

Location

The New York Times Building, 620 8th Ave., New York, NY

Cybersecurity incidents are increasing in both scope and scale every day. Intellectual property and personal information are illegally copied, online and critical services are disrupted electronically, systems are erased or destroyed, and sophisticated malicious cyber actors are very active and often remain undetected for quite some time. Newspaper headlines regarding high profile incidents against Target, Saudi Aramco, Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, Sony Pictures, and Nasdaq, are drawing the attention of corporate leaders. Global companies now find it necessary to determine their level of preparedness for cyber incidents and assess the adequacy of corporate cybersecurity policies, procedures, controls, and operations.

During this open house, Arthur M. Langer, Executive Director of Innovation & Design and Interim Program Director for the Executive Master of Science in Technology Management program at Columbia University, as well as the program’s administrators, we be on hand to discuss the program’s curriculum, coursework, experience, and outcomes. Melissa Hathaway, American Private Sector Cybersecurity Expert and Former Acting Senior Director for Cyberspace at the National Security Council, will discuss the threats that enterprises face and what it means to be “cyber-ready” for today’s digital dependent businesses. She will use case studies to illuminate the business impacts of cyber insecurity and what measures can be taken to reduce risk during a time of increased scrutiny of management by regulators and shareholders.
