Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015
The Los Angeles Chapter of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA-LA) is pleased to announce CEOWORLD Magazine as Media Diamond Sponsor of the Seventh Annual Information Security Summit on June 4 – 5, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Summit theme, The Growing Cyber Threat: Protect Your Business, reflects the reality that cybercrime impacts the financial health of all our organizations: businesses, government agencies, healthcare, schools, nonprofits, and others. The Summit will highlight emerging solutions to the challenges of cybercrime.
“We are very excited to have CEOWORLD Magazine as our organization’s Media Diamond Sponsor of our Summit,” said Summit Co-Chair and ISSA-LA Vice President Richard Greenberg. “CEOWORLD Magazine is one of the world’s leading business and technology magazines written strictly for CEOs and their peers. C-Suite executives are one of several target audiences we are trying to reach with our Summit, since they are most responsible for the reputation of their businesses. This year, as part of the Summit, there will be three special all-day forums with the focus on key decision makers in business, the community, and government: the Executive Forum, the HealthCare Privacy and Security Forum, and the CISO Executive Forum.”
A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers study revealed that nearly 45% of US CEOs (21% globally) say they are "extremely concerned" about cyber threats and a lack of data security, making them the most-worried group among nations. A survey by RedSeal reported that 80% of US business executives say a cyberattack could have "serious impacts to business profitability and growth" and cause "serious brand damage."
The ISSA-LA Summit is the only educational forum in Los Angeles specifically designed to encourage participation and interaction in finding solutions to cybercrime. The Summit is part of ISSA-LA’s important community outreach program. The goal of the program is to help the community stay safe from cybercrime by enabling the necessary collaboration between business, nonprofit and community leaders, technical IT professionals, law enforcement and the information security community.
Registration is open to anyone interested in learning more about information security: business professionals in law, healthcare, accounting, insurance and banking; technical IT personnel; law enforcement professionals fighting cybercrime; faculty and students in college and university cybersecurity programs; and information security professionals.
