The number of Internet-connected Devices (IoT) is expected to increase from about 4 billion to over 20 billion devices by 2020. This will create wonderful new capabilities, but also more cyber risks due to the increased number of attack surfaces and the growing expertise of hackers and the thriving black market for stolen data and malware. How can your organization mitigate cyber risk? How can innovative new technologies and methods help? Where should the governance of cybersecurity fit in your organization? Pres. Obama has just proposed to allocate $19B to cybersecurity in latest budget – is that enough and how can it help your organization? This panel will address the strategic, managerial, and operational issues of cybersecurity.
