British cybersecurity specialist Becrypt to present at high profile New York City Cyber
Government and enterprise security supplier Becrypt CEO joins panel to discuss emerging risks and new countermeasures to combat the next major threat ? security risks within the supply chain.
London, UK, September 18, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ - Dr Bernard Parsons, Becrypt CEO, has been invited to speak at the prestigious New York City Cyber Security Summit, held on 18
September. The Summit is aimed C-level executives responsible for protecting their companies’ critical infrastructures from cyber attack. Dr Parsons joins a debate on emerging risks and the defensive countermeasures that are available. In particular, he will focus on the security risks within supply chains and explore whether risk management practices are being effective in identifying the real business impact of a data breach.
Dr Parsons states; “We have seen an increase in regulatory scrutiny that has affected not just financial institutions, but a broad base of 3rd party suppliers. While activities can be outsourced, responsibility cannot, and security breaches within the supply chain are proving a huge risk to organizations. Simply conducting an audit to validate 3rd party security is for many proving insufficient, in light of the far reaching impact of high profile data breaches that are setting precedents for liability. As breaches become more frequent and real for most, we are seeing a shift from discussions of risk, which imply a possibility of attack, to business impact and liability that recognizes their constant presence.”
