Global Cyber Alliance Ready for RSA 2017

Sole Non-Profit Sponsor for RSA Conference 2017

As cybersecurity’s best and brightest minds prepare for RSA Conference 2017 next month in San Francisco, the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) is proud to lend our support as the non-profit sponsor of this premier event.

RSA’s mission is to connect cybersecurity vendors, professionals, and government officials. The conference’s focus on empowering the cybersecurity industry to stay ahead of threats is a perfect complement to GCA’s focus on eradicating systemic cyber risks.

Over the course of the conference, which runs from February 13-17, GCA President and CEO, Philip Reitinger, will be an active voice, lending his extensive cyber security expertise in both the public and private sectors on two panels.

Panel 1 (February 15)

Law Enforcement: Prevention through Risk Reduction

Law enforcement is playing a game of cybersecurity catchup. Global law enforcement coordination is still challenging, officers are undertrained and prosecutors are frustrated. The threat-by-threat, finger-in-the-dike approach isn’t working. By applying principles of predictive analysis to reduce risk in cybersecurity, as in other types of crime prevention, is it possible to stem the tide?

Additional panelists include:

Commander Christopher Greany-National Coordinator for Economic Crime, City of London Police

Scott S. Smith-Assistant Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation

Cyrus Vance, Jr.-District Attorney, New York County District Attorney’s Office

Panel 2 (February 17)

A Clear View: Cybersecurity by the Numbers

Predictive analysis is used by many professions to determine risk, shape prevention strategies and inform governance decisions. Continuous defense is exhausting, inefficient and leaves blind spots. Decisions are difficult to make, resources wasted, and systems and data left exposed because every day is tactical versus strategic. Can we create a risk dashboard to move from defense to offense?

Additional panelists include:

Graeme Newman-Chief Innovation Officer, CFC Underwriting

Troels Oerting-Group Chief Security Officer (CSO) and Group Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Barclays

Jacob Olcott-Vice President, BitSight Technologies
