MEDIA ALERT: Expert Panel to Discuss Building a Proactive Cyber-Defense Strategy

MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge Looks at Tools, Tactics for Improving Data Security, Privacy in Face of Modern Threats

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - Cyber-security -- often thought of as a concern only to large organizations -- has greatly expanded in scope, as everything is now digitally connected. This brings great convenience to the individual. But, it also greatly benefits the attacker, who wants to steal personal data, intellectual property and other assets that people want to keep private and secure.

There's a tendency to think that cyber-security is someone else's problem. It's everyone's problem. Thinking and acting otherwise is a recipe for failure to both business and brand.

On Wednesday, May 27, the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge will convene a panel of renowned experts who will provide an actionable cybersecurity primer that highlights the strategies, tools and tactics to help your team stay a step ahead of the bad guys.

Moderated by noted security consultant Carole Fennelly, the panel's data security luminaries include: Christopher Ahlberg, CEO, Recorded Future; Alex Jordan, Senior Scientist, Raytheon BBN; Paul Paget, CEO, Pwnie Express; Michelle Whitham, Partner, Foley Hoag; Corey Thomas, CEO, Rapid7; and Ken Pfeil.

Date: May 27, 2015
Time: 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. EDT
Location: MIT Stata Center, Room 32-123
32 Vassar Street, Cambridge, MA
