Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City, forum that will bring the latest thinking from security experts to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises’ information assets.
New York, NY, October 14, 2014 -- Cybersecurity has become a U.S. government priority after a string of denial of service (DOS) attacks on government computers and hacking attempts of the CIA’s main computer, as well as on French, Israeli and British defense agencies. But while many of these sophisticated cyberattacks have sought to inconvenience governmental agencies that have little impact on day-to-day public life, many in the government are increasingly worried about attacks on specific industries.
Golden Networking's Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distil their latest thinking for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprise and government valuable assets. Cyber security experts will discuss topics such as protecting individuals and companies against cyber-attacks, biometrics as the future of security, risks brought by mobile computing, and protecting corporate and national infrastructure against foreign attacks.
According to the International Business Times, the Internet security company Kaspersky Lab said it had uncovered the most sophisticated cyberthreat it had ever seen, called The Mask. Experts there said that the operation was most likely from a Spanish-speaking country and will likely target natural gas and oil companies. They also said that the threat appears to have been around since 2007 and has taken over thousands of IP addresses in dozens of countries. The recent discovery follows attacks from Flame malware about two years ago that rendered Iranian computer systems completely useless. At that time, it was one of the most dangerous cyberterrorism programs.
The attacks and discovery of The Mask have led President Barack Obama to make cybersecurity a government priority. Erin Rosenbach, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyberpolicy, said in a recent interview with the American Forces Press Service: “Through an intense deliberative process, the [most senior] leadership in the department decided that we needed to make a significant investment in the people who would constitute the cyber force.” Each military service will contribute manpower toward a new force of “cyberwarriors” to the U.S. Cyber Command, which will concentrate on three key areas: defending DOD information networks, supporting combatant commands and defending the nation. The financial services and oil industries have been particularly vulnerable in recent years as cyberterrorists go after companies that they claim have brought harm to the public.
Cyber Security World Conference 2014 is produced by Golden Networking, the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to email@example.com.
