How the Cybersecurity Framework Helps your Company at Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), 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 (November 4, 2014) -- A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, says Bill Buchanan, The Conversation. Computer security relies on a great number of links, hardware, software and something else altogether: you. The greatest threat to information security is actually people. Why strive to defeat encrypted passwords stored in computers, when those computers' human users will turn them over willingly?

A huge problem with most types of digital communications, processing and storage is that it's often very difficult to differentiate between a true communication and one which has been falsified. This stems largely from the internet's background as an open, insecure system. In emails apparently from legitimate websites, the email address of the sender can be spoofed, that is, replaced with another that is not the sender's actual address, as some email relay systems allow this.

Corporations are today targeted as never before, with growth in hacking attacks linked to nation states and overseas governments; in fact, sophisticated and sustained campaigns of phishing have succeeded in stealing information from firms and organizations all over the world. Symantec recorded a 62% rise in data breaches from spear phishing in 2013.

In response to the growing cyber threat, the Cybersecurity Framework, which was drafted by the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), represents a tipping point in the evolution of cybersecurity, one in which the balance is shifting to proactive risk-management standards. While its application is voluntary, organizations across industries may gain significant benefits by adopting the guidelines.

Golden Networking's Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today's enterprises to learn more about the Cybersecurity Framework and how to apply it to their organization. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2014 will discuss include:

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
Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States

About Cyber Security World Conference 2014
Cyber security is never again a term to ignore for individuals or corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country's global economic prominence and worldwide security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Unfortunately, the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing exorbitantly high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America's largest commercial 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 cyber attack in one of the most sweeping known global breaches. The company said the unknown attackers stole customers' contact information, which included names, email addresses, numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to almost 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.

Renowned information security experts and innovative service providers will present at Cyber Security World Conference 2014 their latest thinking to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises and governmental agencies.

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 information@goldennetworking.com.
