Editors Host RSA Sessions
At this year's event, ISMG is leading two panel sessions as part of the conference agenda:
- Risk Management: How to Put Theory into Practice: Hosted by Executive Editor Eric Chabrow, this session will focus on why organizations continue to struggle putting a risk management framework into place. Participants include Ron Ross, Fellow at NIST; Justin Somaini, former CISO at Yahoo!; and John Streufert, National Cybersecurity Division Director with the Department of Homeland Security. The session will be held 9:20 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in Room 133 of the Moscone Center.
- Banking Fraud: Where Is The Liability - With the Customer, Bank or Vendor?: Hosted by Managing Editor Tracy Kitten, this session features a debate on the question of who is liable when a business banking account is breached - the customer whose credentials were stolen or the bank that failed to catch the transaction. Participants include attorney Dan Mitchell, who represented fraud victim PATCO Construction; Bill Nelson, president of FS-ISAC; attorney Joseph Burton; and fraud expert George Tubin. This session will be held 9:20 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 28, in Room 302.
