Top CISOs & C-Suite Executives Share Best Practices at Sold Out Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit

Cybersecurity chiefs from AT&T, Aetna, Goldman Sachs, DHS and GE joined former Commander, U.S. Cyber Command and NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander to chart cybersecurity best practices for corporations.

Understand the Threats, Vulnerabilities and Risks in Cyberspace

Large-scale denial-of-services attacks and point-of-sale thefts capture the headlines, but hackers also are targeting businesses of all sizes. And new legislation may require corporations to report a breach when it occurs rather than months later.

The President’s emphasis on cybersecurity in the State of the Union stems from the onslaught of major breaches impacting Sony, Target and Home Depot among others. That’s why Billington CyberSecurity launched its first ever Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit with a world-class faculty in New York City on May 27. 

Leading cyber experts discussed:

  • The weak links that cyber criminals exploit and how to protect
  • Engaging the board room about cybersecurity
  • Steps the C-Suite can and must take to help secure not just their own
    networks but those of third parties and holding companies
  • Insurance options
  • How automation will help minimize risks and speed detection

A Perfect Storm

This perfect storm of cyber threats causes alarm, even in sectors that have faced cyber threats for a long time.

The purpose of the Billington Corporate Cybersecurity Summit was to provide a new, serious dialogue about how corporations, financial services institutions—and their portfolio companies—could improve their cybersecurity against a mounting onslaught of cyber threats.  

  • Understand the steps you must take to help secure your
  • Find out what is necessary to ensure your firm doesn't suffer the same
    negative publicity, losses and intellectual property theft as many major
    corporations did last year.
  • Understand how new legislation will impact your business
