The SINET Innovation Summit connects America’s three most powerful epicenters – Wall Street, Silicon Valley and the Beltway – to highlight the importance of industry, government and academic collaboration on joint research initiatives. The summit is designed to reinvigorate public-private partnership efforts and increase relationships that foster the sharing of information and joint collaboration on cybersecurity research projects.
Reed Taussig, CEO at ThreatMetrix, will participate in a panel at the summit titled “The Emerging Trends in Cyber Fraud and How to Defend Against It.” The panel will address the impact organized cybercrime has on our economy, where those threats are originating and the potential impact U.S. national security, among other pressing issues. Attendees will learn strategic and tactical solutions to combat organized cybercrime.
“The scope of cybercrime these days reaches above and beyond what many people recognize and a collective approach to cybersecurity is necessary to prevent evolving threats,” said Taussig. “In addition to the risks consumers and businesses face with increased online activity, our nation’s critical infrastructure faces more severe risks than ever before as water, power and other critical utilities move online. ThreatMetrix leverages the power of our comprehensive cybercrime data repository to help protect businesses across a wide range of industries – from financial services to government agencies – in real time and I’m looking forward to sharing our approach to cybersecurity with SINET Innovation Summit attendees.”
