Invitation to attend the next Boston SIM CIO Roundtable, December 3rd. 2014 at

The Lynn Community Health Center.

The focus of the meeting will be Cyber Security

“Financial Planning and Cyber Security - Real Risk Management” and

“Anatomy of a Breech - The Lies my CIO Told Me”

We are building our lives around our wired and wireless networks. Are we ready to do what it takes to

defend this highly connected environment? Even though the NSA and FBI are leading national efforts to

manage high-tech crimes, including cyber-based terrorism, espionage, computer intrusions, and major

cyber fraud, are we doing what we need to do to protect our lives and businesses, or have we fallen into

complacency due to lack of understating the risks, or a lack of relevant actions plans .

As heads of IT, we all need to be diligent and stay in front of current and emerging trends. Part of the

problem is understanding the scope, and defining a manageable and a realistic approach to security. The

CIO Round Table in December will present an opportunity for us to review, understand, and prioritize

threats and recommend actions for our organizations to take to realize practical solutions. The

presentations and related discussions will focus on risks, costs and approach. Further by discussing the

aspects of a breech, we can see ways to rationalize a practical approach to security, AlainMarcus and

Mark Coderre will be our key presenters on this very important topic. Please come and join us on

December 3rd for a truly informative and collaborative CIO RT session.
