Hackers! Insider threats! The cybers!

Most cybersecurity talks focus on expressing the depth of the threat with one purpose: To make you scared. This is done largely to get the C Suite to invest more money in new vendor solutions. But what if we’re asking the wrong questions? What if the problem is not the lack of a managed service provider but rather a lack of clearly understood policies?

Phil’s talk begins on describing how most attacks move within a corporate ecosystem as a means of explaining where the real security holes exist: a lack of clearly understood policies. This moves a critical element of cybersecurity from CISOs to CEOs.

We will then discuss the critical questions that every CEO needs to ask and understand in order to provide clear corporate guidance to resolve 95% of the threat.

But what about that other 5%? Invariably, every company will be hacked at some point. Companies with well exercised plans brief their Boards on predefined remediation metrics. Companies with ad hoc response brief their Boards on the timing of resignations. Phil will end the discussion by talking about how to think about and exercise remediation plans.

This holistic discussion will move the discussion from fear to actionable non-technical solutions for CEOs, CFOs, CMOs, GCs, and every other senior leader who wants to take control of their companies back from the fearmongers.

We hope you can make it to this event and feel free to spread the word.

He served on the executive team implementing President Obama’s Executive Order 13636, Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity; developed the first version of DHS’s continuous diagnostic monitoring (CDM) program as well as conception-to-deployment of EINSTEIN 3A; chaired the internal DHS China Working Group; launched the first ministerial-level engagement on cybersecurity cooperation between DHS and the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of Public Security; ran the DHS Big Data Project; and worked on interagency law enforcement task forces investigating significant cybersecurity hacks (including the 2013 $45-million ATM cyber heist). Phil also helped negotiate the U.S.-EU Passenger Name Records Agreement, which improved the safety and security of both continents through secure data sharing on inbound passengers from the EU.

Before joining President Obama’s Administration, Phil served as counsel to the U.S. House of Representative’s Committee on House Administration, led then-Senator Obama’s 2008 field campaign in northern Michigan, and served in the General Counsel’s office at the New York City Board of Elections.
