Keynote Presentation: The Economics of Data Breaches & Cybersecurity Exploits

Dr. Larry Ponemon, Ponemon Institute

What are companies spending to resolve a data breach or cyberattack and what investments in people, process and technologies should be made to minimize the financial consequences? Dr. Larry Ponemon will cover the following topics from Ponemon Institute’s recent research:

  • The relationship between how quickly an organization can identify and contain data breach incidents and the cost of a data breach.
  • What activities decrease the cost of a data breach such as extensive testing of incident response plans and what types of breaches have the most severe financial consequences.
  • The economic value of prevention in the cybersecurity lifecycle.
  • The economics of security operations centers and what investments should be made for effective results.
Who Should Attend?

  • Risk management professionals
  • In-house counsel
  • Financial executives
