the SINET Innovation Summit
Today in New York City SINET holds its annual Innovation Summit at the Times Center. The New York version of SINET's well-known, well-attended conferences seeks to bring together security technology innovators with cyber policy leaders and (particularly important in New York) major investors and buyers of cyber products and solutions.
The financial services sector is heavily represented among this year's panels and speakers. Among the topics to be pursued are trends in Internet-of-things ransomware (specifically the rising threat of "jackware"), modeling third-party risk, the development of meaningful cybersecurity metrics, enterprise mobility as a megatrend, sector-specific information-sharing initiatives, how and why enterprise website security measures fail, managing privacy risk, and positive disruptions that are improving security.
The conference will also include insights into public-private cooperation (with updates from longstanding SINET sponsor and partner, the US Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate) and the perennial challenge of communication cyber risk issues to a corporate board.
The CyberWire will be providing live coverage from the event and publishing accounts of the sessions tomorrow. Follow @theCyberWire on Twitter for updates during the day.
