FT Cyber Security Summit USA

  • National Press Club

The internet of things will exacerbate the problem, with attackers able to disrupt more organisations and more people through more devices. At the same time, federal and governments are introducing new laws and regulations that require companies to do more to protect themselves, and their customers, from security breaches. While company bosses can see the need for tougher rules on data protection and personal privacy, these new rules create an additional burden. For instance, the EU/US Privacy Shield improves protection for Europe’s citizens whose data is kept on US servers, but it places strict obligations on American companies on how that data is processed and people’s privacy guaranteed.

FT Cyber Security Summit USA, now in its third year, will explore the cyber threats facing America, and what is being done to deal with them. Leading experts will talk about a range of issues, including legislation aimed at improving cyber security, the role of the new presidential administration, the responsibilities of corporate boards and senior management, data protection, the pressures facing chief information security officers in banking and other critical infrastructure industries, national security concerns, cyber terrorism and the emerging threat posed by the Internet of Things. Speakers will grapple with the big question: Is America losing the cyber war?

d10e Romania: Celebrating Decentralization

d10e is a numeronym for decentralization. In the past couple of years, the FinTech ecosystem embraced Bitcoin and other digital currencies, a movement which allowed multiple disruptive industries to explode. The race toward a unifying theme (decentralization) became evident and part of our everyday lives. 

Decentralization is paramount for privacy and cybersecurity in the 21st century. One simply has to look at the billions accounts in centralized databases being hacked year after year to see its importance. D10e embodies this ethos by disseminating these values and technologies into the culture worldwide.

MGT is a sponsor and Mr. McAfee will open the event and participate in a roundtable discussion about his company's contributions to cybersecurity and privacy in the age of decentralized networks. You can review the agenda here:
