MAPPS Webinar on Cybersecurity

Posted By Beth Hawley, Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Cyber-attacks represent increasingly dangerous and consequential threats facing businesses. As our reliance on information technology steadily grows, our digital infrastructure remains vulnerable to the mounting intrusions by independent cybercriminals and state-sponsored operations. This puts almost all aspects of American life, and our firms, at risk.

U.S. computer networks have already sustained numerous high-level security breaches, including the hack of Sony Pictures last fall. These intrusions have cost American businesses hundreds of millions of dollars, while giving foreign entities access to sensitive intellectual property.

To help MAPPS member firms understand and address this growing threat, we are hosting a webinar on how to secure your cyber network and prevent data breaches.

Also, you will learn about new requirements imposed on Federal contractors to enhance cyber security.

Join us as Robert Dix, VP of Global Government Affairs and Public Policy for Juniper Networks, and Rebecca Lawson, Senior Director of Product Marketing for Juniper Networks, lead a conversation about how the market is delivering innovation to address the cybersecurity challenge and how you can help in the adoption of best practices and technologies to reduce the risk of cyber intrusions in your own environment.

You'll leave with:

  • A better understanding of the policy and technical elements of cybersecurity risk management;
  • A look at innovations to address the cybersecurity challenge that are coming down the pike;
  • Instructions on how you can help in the adoption of best practices and technologies to reduce the risk of cyber intrusions in your own environment.

The webinar is Thursday, April 30 at 2:00 PM EDT.
