Tom Conkle, Commercial Cybersecurity Lead, G2, Inc.

Concerns with the increasing number of successful cyber attacks (a recent Ponemon survey identified that 67% of Critical Infrastructure providers surveyed were breached last year*) and the continued increase in Cybersecurity spending prompted the U.S. Government to develop the Cybersecurity Framework in February of 2014.

If you have questions about the Cybersecurity Framework and what this means for your organization, this webcast will provide you with access to two of the foremost experts. Hear from Admiral Mike Brown who participated in the development of the Presidential Executive Order (E.O. 13636) which led to the development of the Framework. Also hear from G2, Inc., who was engaged by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as the prime contractor to assist in the development of the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

While the Framework was developed for Critical Infrastructure providers it is a valuable tool for any company with cyber presence. Join this webcast to learn more about:
           The history of the Cybersecurity Framework and why it was developed
           The Cybersecurity Framework components
           The benefits your organization can obtain from using the Cybersecurity Framework
           How to get started using the Framework

           You will also have the chance to ask questions at the end of the webcast.
