Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Jan 29, 2017 - Every company collects and holds multitudes of data stored on internal and external servers located across the globe. Yet cyber-attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade, exposing sensitive business information, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy. What methods are being implemented for businesses in the U.S. and Europe to protect themselves from cyber threats?
The threat of cybercrime and the importance of taking measures to increase cyber security is an especially relevant topic when dealing with big data and data flows across international borders. Thus, it is of utmost importance to educate the business community as well as the general public on this issue and to map out similarities and differences in regulations between Europe and the US. This is especially relevant for multinational companies but also applies to other actors that are working internationally. The event also aims to highlight some of the research and best practices in cyber security.
On Tuesday, January 31, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., panelists will discuss recent hacking trends and tools of the trade on both sides of the Atlantic. The presentations will address the tradecraft, politics, “war by other means”, and cyber regulation in the EU and the U.S.
