Protecting Businesses in Cyberspace
The FT Cyber Security Summit USA 2015 explored what is currently being done to protect businesses in cyberspace…and, more importantly, what more could be done. Following inaugural FT Cyber Security Summit 2014 held in London, the USA conference covered many of the same issues, but with a sharper focus on the threats facing businesses, especially those in critical national infrastructure industries such as financial services, energy and transportation.
The Summit was chaired and moderated by senior FT journalists and brought together senior business executives, corporate information security officers, consultants and IT experts to discuss the broader business issues of cyber security. It also featured top officials from government departments and agencies who have responsibility for developing national cyber security strategies that help both the public and private sectors manage existing and emerging cyber risks.
To encourage an open exchange of ideas and frank discussion, some of the speeches and panel sessions were held under the Chatham House Rule1 and are clearly indicated as such on the agenda.
