Compromise and Control at the Perimeter of the Network: Online Trust, Mobile Security and Mitigating Risk in Mergers and Acquisitions

LinkedIn, Symantec, Facebook, Twitter, Nissan, and a number of U.S. Government agencies have all fallen victim to network intrusions: they've all been hacked. Every day countless unauthorized attempts to access sensitive data happen. When hackers successfully intrude corporate systems, companies face reputational harm and potential civil liability. Your company is likely taking steps to protect its networks, personally identifiable information housed on its networks, classified information and market sensitive information, but access to your networks by customers, mobile devices and hackers around the world expose your company to ever-evolving risks. Now your company considers acquiring a target. What new risks to your company's networks, customers and business reputation may arise because of your planned acquisition, and what measures can companies take to mitigate that risk?

Please join our panel of distinguished cyber security experts from Stroz Friedberg and Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy, together with leading mergers and acquisitions practitioners from CACI and Holland and Knight, as we discuss cybersecurity, current threats, online trust, the material risk enterprises face daily and acquisition risk mitigation strategies. Our panel will focus on steps you need to consider to protect the security of organic and acquired corporate networks.
