Our “Executive Briefing” is part of our Education Program, designed to help businesses, not-for-profits, schools, and government agencies effectively meet the challenges of cybercrime and other threats to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

The Cyber Security Challenge
Cyber thieves in the Ukraine recently stole more than $400,000 from an escrow company in Redondo Beach. Other cyber thieves broke into the website of an online retailer in Yorba Linda and stole money from the company’s customers. A Los Angeles retailer spent more than 3 months and countless thousands of dollars in an extensive FTC inquiry following the inadvertent disclosure of employee social security numbers.
Cybercrime has become big business, costing businesses and not-for-profits millions of dollars annually in theft, fraud, embezzlement and other losses. Federal and state laws — like HIPAA and more than 45 different state breach disclosure laws — are imposing an increasing management burden on organizations. Commercial security requirements — like the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard —impose their own burden, in money, time, and other resources.
Organizations can no longer ignore the reality of cybercrime. They must manage their cyber security challenge like never before.
Moreover, cyber security management must come from the top: (i) the financial exposure from cyber crime has become too large and (ii) cyber criminals now have advanced cyber weapons able to circumvent current security technologies.
