US-China Bilateral Dialogue on Cybersecurity to be Discussed by Knightmare on Wall Street’s Edgar Perez at Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2015

According to research firm Novetta Solutions, Axiom, a part of the Chinese Intelligence Apparatus, is responsible for directing highly sophisticated cyber espionage operations against numerous Fortune 500 companies, journalists, environmental groups, pro-democracy groups, software companies, academic institutions, and government agencies worldwide for at least the last six years. In Novetta’s coordinated effort, they performed the first ever-private sponsored interdiction against a sophisticated state sponsored advanced threat group. Their efforts detected and cleaned 43,000 separate installations of Axiom tools, including 180 of their top tier implants.

The organization responsible for directing Axiom, according to NewsFactor, appears to be targeting specific industries, including electronics and integrated circuit manufacturers, networking equipment manufacturers, Internet-based services companies, software vendors (particularly in the Asia-Pacific region), law firms with an international or M&A footprint, telecom companies, manufacturing conglomerates, venture capital firms, energy companies, meteorological services companies, cloud computing providers and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Yet, a spokesperson for the Chinese embassy dismissed the report’s claims as “fictitious.”

Amidst mounting distrust, Edgar Perez (http://mredgarperez.com), author of Knightmare on Wall Street, will discuss the state of the cybersecurity dialogue between the United States and China at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com). This forum will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distill their latest research for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprise and government valuable assets. Cyber security experts will discuss topics 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.

About Cyber Security World Conference 2015

On Friday, October 17, 2014, U.S. President Barack Obama signed an executive order to strengthen security measures for federal credit cards, and urged banks and retailers to follow suit in an effort to combat cyber theft and identity fraud. Several major corporations would take steps to make their own systems more secure and offer more customer protections as well.

These unprecedented steps came after many large companies including Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, 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.

For instance, JPMorgan Chase, America’s largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, has revealed that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers have been impacted by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. Unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affecting an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.

Renowned information security experts and innovative service providers will present at Cyber Security World Conference 2015 their latest thinking to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises and governmental agencies. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2015 will discuss include:

  • Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
  • Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
  • How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
  • Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
  • Role of Cyber Security in the Overall Security of the United States
  • Security Risks brought by Mobile Computing
  • Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
  • The Enterprise Impact of Cyber Risk through the Shareholder Lens

Cyber Security World Conference 2015 is produced by Golden Networking, the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors.

How your Company can be the Weakest Link and how the Cybersecurity Framework can Help at Golden Networking’s Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, says Bill Buchanan, The Conversation. Computer security relies on a great number of links, hardware, software and something else altogether: you. The greatest threat to information security is actually people. Why strive to defeat encrypted passwords stored in computers, when those computers’ human users will turn them over willingly?

A huge problem with most types of digital communications, processing and storage is that it’s often very difficult to differentiate between a true communication and one which has been falsified. This stems largely from the internet’s background as an open, insecure system. In emails apparently from legitimate websites, the email address of the sender can be spoofed, that is, replaced with another that is not the sender’s actual address, as some email relay systems allow this.

Corporations are today targeted as never before, with growth in hacking attacks linked to nation states and overseas governments; in fact, sophisticated and sustained campaigns of phishing have succeeded in stealing information from firms and organizations all over the world. Symantec recorded a 62% rise in data breaches from spear phishing in 2013.

In response to the growing cyber threat, the Cybersecurity Framework, which was drafted by the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), represents a tipping point in the evolution of cybersecurity, one in which the balance is shifting to proactive risk-management standards. While its application is voluntary, organizations across industries may gain significant benefits by adopting the guidelines.

Golden Networking‘s Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today’s enterprises to learn more about the Cybersecurity Framework and how to apply it to their organization. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2014 will discuss include:

  • Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
  • Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
  • Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
  • How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
  • Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
  • Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
  • Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States

About Cyber Security World Conference 2014

Cyber security is never again a term to ignore for individuals or corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country’s global economic prominence and worldwide security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Unfortunately, the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing exorbitantly high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America’s largest commercial bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cyber attack in one of the most sweeping known global breaches. The company said the unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to almost two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.
