BOSTON, Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Advanced Cyber Security Center (ACSC), a non-profit, member-driven organization committed to ensuring members and the region are national leaders in Collaborative Defense, today announced that its ninth annual conference will take place on Thursday, November 7 from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. This invitation-only event brings together a unique audience of more than 150 CISOs, legal counsel and communications leaders from member organizations, as well as leaders from the state and federal government and the regional cyber community.
“The sophistication and complexity of cyber attacks challenge even the most mature of organizations,” said John McKenna, Interim Executive Director of the ACSC. “In response, the ACSC, in partnership with the private and public sectors, has made incident planning and response and the use of simulations a central focus of its Collaborative Defense threat sharing and effective practice initiatives.”
“Our ninth annual conference is a capstone event, bringing together our members to share effective strategies for a collaborative approach to defense, “said William Guenther, ACSC Chairman and Founder. “In 2019 our trusted networks for members expanded from primarily CISOs to networks for Legal Counsel and Communications Leaders. I am pleased to welcome these new networks to the conference as we include their perspectives in setting the collaborative defense agenda for the next five years.”
