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 City, NY, USA (October 14, 2014) -- Cyber security is no longer a term to ignore for neither individuals nor corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country's economic prominence and global security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Yet the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America's largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. The bank said the unknown attackers stole customers' contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.

Golden Networking's Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City ( 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 today's enterprises. 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.

Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can't Ignore Today
Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
