Morgan Stanley joined a growing list of prominent corporate brands to suffer a data breach, after it revealed one of his financial advisors stole the information of as many as 350,000 wealth management clients, and that some of the data was posted online for sale. The event reminds consumers and investors of the ever-evolving and ubiquitous threat of data breaches.
Many other large companies including Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart had suffered high-profile cyber security breaches. It is not beyond the realm of possibilities to think that today the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.
Amidst these pressing challenges, Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street, will discuss what consumers and investors can learn from recent cybersecurity incidents in the United States at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 New York City. The forum will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distil their latest research for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprise and government valuable assets. Cyber security experts will discuss subjects such as protecting individuals and companies against cyber-attacks, biometrics as the future of security, risks brought by mobile computing, and protecting corporate and national infrastructure against foreign attacks.
