Stroz Friedberg Cyber Experts to Explore Critical Information Security Issues at Black Hat USA 2012

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) - Stroz Friedberg LLC, a leading global digital risk management and investigations firm, is proud to be a Silver Sponsor and sponsor of the VIP Party at this year's Black Hat USA Briefings, held July 25 - 26 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada. Led by Erin Nealy Cox, Executive Managing Director and Leader of the firm's Global Cyber and Incident Response Practice, Stroz Friedberg will field a team of malware, security, forensic and national defense experts at the show.

Stroz Friedberg is sponsoring the Black Hat VIP 2012 Party on July 24, a one-of-its-kind industry networking event convening key conference speakers and Senior and Executive decision makers. Stroz Friedberg will be providing guests at the Black Hat VIP Party with complimentary copies of the newly released 2012 Malware Forensics Field Guide published by Syngress and co-authored by James M. Aquilina, Executive Managing Director and Leader of the firm's Digital Forensic Practice.

"In response to the overwhelming rise of cyber security complexities for businesses, government agencies and law firms alike, Stroz Friedberg has aggressively grown our Cyber practice and looks forward to making our Black Hat debut as a Silver Sponsor. We are excited to play such an active role in what is considered to be one of the premier conferences on information security," said Eric Friedberg, Co-President, Stroz Friedberg.

"This event is a great venue to showcase our technical and practical approaches to sophisticated cyber challenges and at the same time, share actionable knowledge with thousands of leading thinkers from all facets of the InfoSec world," said Ms. Nealy Cox, Executive Managing Director. While exhibiting at booth #237 in the Octavius Ballroom on July 25th and July 26th, Stroz Friedberg's cyber experts will be available to share their views on security trends and valuable "lessons-learned" from assisting cybercrime victims over the last decade. Ms. Nealy Cox, along with the company's teams of digital forensics and malware specialists will also provide insights on how their services and technologies are addressing clients' critical data security issues.

Ms. Nealy Cox continued, "The Internet was not created with security concern in mind, and as the number of data breaches and attacks mount, the theft of intellectual property and cybercrime is costing companies billions in damages. Attackers will work day and night to get into corporate systems as well as the added threat of malicious insiders. That is why organizations truly need to think in terms of 'when,' not 'if' they will be a target, and to that end, understand that good security comes from a solid collaboration of people, technology and processes."
