Preparing for Cyber’s Evolution: Collaboration, Cooperation and Risk Mitigation

Cybersecurity has moved beyond a siloed information security-focused issue and is now an integral aspect of most corporate operations, with retailers trapped in the crosshairs. Groups within an organization, including IT, loss prevention and legal, must collaborate on developing strategies for risk mitigation and response, in addition to cooperating with external law enforcement partners. In this keynote, noted cybercrime expert and legal counsel Kimberly Peretti explains how cyberthreats have evolved since garnering massive data breach headlines in the early 2000’s.

As a top prosecutor for the Department of Justice, Peretti led the successful 2007 case against notorious TJX data hacker Albert Gonzalez. A captivating storyteller, Peretti underscores the key cybersecurity issues facing retailers today with important lessons about social engineering, phishing scams and ransomware; key cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks; the vital roles asset protection professionals play in incident response and investigations; and preparing for imminent cyber-enabled crimes. Don’t miss this timely keynote -- come away as a more valued asset in your cyber incident response team.
