THE CROWN JEWELS:
PROTECTING WHAT'S IMPORTANT

Join us on December 3 for our sixth annual Cyber Risk Conference at DePaul University! 

4.0 CLE Credits Available

The assets of an organization are exposed to loss from cyber-related perils in many ways: directly, such as through unauthorized access, ransomware, or spyware; and indirectly, such as through infrastructure sabotage or failure. Implementing defenses against all of these perils takes time, money, and other resources. How should an organization set priorities to protect the most important assets from the most salient perils?

In this conference we explore the process of protecting the "Crown Jewel" assets from the full spectrum of cyber-related perils.

Keynote Speaker

Why are critical infrastructure assets so easy to attack?

Can a criminal entity or terrorist group -- from the other side of the world -- take down the Internet and telecommunications systems? Or launch a worm that disrupts oil and gas pipelines, water and electric power distribution? How will we cope if the outages last for days? This presentation highlights the challenges involved in securing interconnected critical infrastructure assets, in particular, the Internet and IP networks, telecommunications networks, banking networks, and process control (SCADA) networks used in oil and gas pipelines, coal mines, wind farms and water and electric power distribution systems. Also, it discusses the importance of designing security solutions that weave science, technology and policy.

Sujeet Shenoi, F.P. Walter Professor of Computer Science and a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma; and a member of the technical staff at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Maryland.
