Tom Ridge (Exclusively WSB)

Organizations of all types today face a daily and growing assault from nation states, lone actors and organized crime. The assailants target everything from trade secrets to proprietary information to reputation damage to critical infrastructure and financial systems. The effects are as far-reaching, disruptive and consequential as physical attacks, and can make or break organizations that are not sufficiently prepared. How can an organization embed cyber security into its suite of core business functions? How can we better protect our globally interdependent systems? What are the rules of engagement for world leaders, and what are the consequences for their foes? In this presentation, one of the world’s most notable security experts, Tom Ridge, the first secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, brings the priorities of cyber security into perspective as only an internationally respected leader can. The evolution of cyber security strategy and diplomacy, what to expect from the next generation of cyber attacks and how to navigate it all mark this compelling, insightful presentation of a growing and global 21st century threat.

The digital sun never sets. It will only get hotter. Every day, through the internet of everything, we generate more data and share more information about ourselves with other individuals, corporations and government. How much access should government have to this information to protect you from criminals, predators and terrorists? Are rights to privacy and security exclusive to one another? Join Tom Ridge, America’s first Secretary of Homeland Security, for this timely discussion about the critical choices we face when technology, civil liberties and security collide.

Could iPhone-based apps challenge the world’s leading financial institutions in the same way that Amazon revolutionized commerce and Uber up-ended the transportation sector? Innovation in the software-based financial technology (FinTech) sector has attracted significant attention because of its clear potential to disrupt existing global financial services models. Many analysts believe that Fintech will be the “next big thing” for tech firms and investors in Silicon Valley. Why? A new model for decentralized transactions, often based on blockchain technology, could replace cumbersome traditional processes that empower banks, insurers and old-school investors.  Rapid growth in software solutions that facilitate person-to-person payments, crowdfunded equity investments and smart, self-executing contracts demonstrates that innovations in financial technology truly could revolutionize this sector. The FinTech Revolution will only occur, however, if this nascent technology overcomes challenges in cybersecurity, digital identity and legal regulation. In his presentation, Rosenbach provides audiences with important insight on:

  • The trajectory of key technologies driving FinTech, including blockchain, digital identity management and cyber security.
  • The current regulatory environment and avenues for reform to spur FinTech growth.
  • The potential for FinTech to shift the balance of the global economy and geo-political centers of gravity.

Russian actions intended to influence the United States presidential election were the most prominent example of a new brand of cyberattacks that combine hacking with disinformation operations. The case once again highlighted the importance of cybersecurity – not just for national security leaders, but also executives in the private sector charged with managing corporate risk. Once a relatively niche topic handled exclusively by the CIO, cybersecurity is now a major concern for CEOs and other corporate leaders. Mitigating the risk of cyberattacks starts with an understanding of strategic drivers of attacks, but requires focused attention on a holistic corporate risk management approach. Any strategy for mitigating the risk of cyberattacks must also focus on an effective response that addresses key issues from an operational, legal and public affairs perspective. In this presentation, Rosenbach, once known as the "Cyber Czar" of the Pentagon, provides the audience with invaluable insight on:

  • The most recent evolution of cyberattacks and what they mean for national and corporate leaders.
  • Proven strategies for reducing the risk of cyberattacks against private and public sector organizations.
  • The most promising technologies emerging in the cybersecurity market.
