New York FBI Cybersecurity Event

Oracle / Hub City Media’s 3rd FBI Cyber Security Executive Round Table at the Four Seasons in New York

The New York Cyber Security Executive Round Table took place Tuesday, August 19th, providing 11 New York City security executives with the opportunity to discuss security vulnerabilities with FBI special agent in charge of the cyber security division, and nine industry experts from Oracle and Hub City Media.

Executives from the financial, media, telecommunications, and manufacturing industries attended the networking luncheon, enjoying a three course meal at the Four Seasons in Manhattan. Special Agent in Charge of the New York FBI Cyber Security division kicked off the event with an impressive security presentation, providing insider secrets into the motives and processes of today’s harmful hackers and explaining real-world examples of their attacks.

A variety of challenges were discussed during the event, from protecting customer data and maintaining PCI compliance, to BYOD and its consequences. Mobile security expert Steve Giovannetti helped facilitate the preceding mobile security discussion, providing statistics from Forrester Research; “Currently, 50% of US & European enterprises are implementing official BYOD programs.” This statistic will only grow as employee demand rises and mobile workforces increase. 

Post event surveys indicated that the customers highly valued both the opportunity to network with their peers, and the presentations provided by our industry experts.  Through the success of this first event, we are building a security user group for the New York security community, enabling these executives to continue networking via a private Linkedin group, as well as a future meet up events to come.
