Fairfield/Westchester SIM May Program
Applying Cyber Counter-Intelligence to Private Sector
Information Security Decision Making
ABOUT THE EVENT
A Unique Perspective on Global Cyber Security Threats
The Information Security Forum recently listed the top ten cyber security threats over the next two years. They included cyber espionage, a balkanized Internet, malware targeting mobile apps, the failure of standard encryption and the growing skill gaps. These threats are global in nature and focused on nation states more than commercial enterprises. They are threats not easily addressed by a company’s information security strategy but instead require cooperation between governments, service providers, major technology companies and industry consortiums.
Fairfield/Westchester SIM is very pleased to welcome Israel Martinez, President & CEO of Axon Global Services as the guest speaker at our May 15th meeting. Mr. Martinez is the author of “What Every CEO Should Know Before, During and After a Cyber Attack” and is a recognized leader in Enterprise Risk Management, Cyber Security, Cyber Counter Intelligence and Digital Identity. His firm, Axon, is dedicated to the relentless pursuit of exceptional technologies, intelligence and executive management practices in Cyber Critical Infrastructure Protection.
Throughout a diverse career, Mr. Martinez has worked directly with the Israeli Defense Forces and Israeli Cyber Research Centers on the latest cyber warfare techniques. He has also been an advisor on cyber incident response strategies to the NASA Kennedy Space Center and the National Healthcare Information and Analysis Center. Today, he and his colleagues at Axon bring this expertise to Fortune 500 companies who face similar threats in their commercial environments.
Mr. Martinez will be sharing with FWSIM his perspective on the cyber threats our country will face in the next few years, and what world governments are doing today to prepare a cyber counter-intelligence response. He will also discuss how corporations must adapt their business and technology strategies to prepare for these new threats. During this chapter meeting, there will be plenty of time for Q&A so come prepared to explore those areas of information security that present the greatest risk to your business results, your intellectual property and your employees.
