Russian actions intended to influence the United States presidential election were the most prominent example of a new brand of cyberattacks that combine hacking with disinformation operations. The case once again highlighted the importance of cybersecurity – not just for national security leaders, but also executives in the private sector charged with managing corporate risk. Once a relatively niche topic handled exclusively by the CIO, cybersecurity is now a major concern for CEOs and other corporate leaders. Mitigating the risk of cyberattacks starts with an understanding of strategic drivers of attacks, but requires focused attention on a holistic corporate risk management approach. Any strategy for mitigating the risk of cyberattacks must also focus on an effective response that addresses key issues from an operational, legal and public affairs perspective. In this presentation, Rosenbach, once known as the "Cyber Czar" of the Pentagon, provides the audience with invaluable insight on:

• The most recent evolution of cyberattacks and what they mean for national and corporate leaders.
• Proven strategies for reducing the risk of cyberattacks against private and public sector organizations.
• The most promising technologies emerging in the cybersecurity market.
