Join iConstituent for expert forums on cyber security, Nov. 15 and Nov. 30, 5-6:30 p.m. in Washington, DC.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 07, 2016
Government software leader iConstituent today announced two post-election cyber security forums featuring experts from Good Harbor Security Risk Management and the Brunswick Group. Good Harbor is a trusted advisor to CEOs, Boards, CISOs, investors, and government leaders on cyber security risk management. The Brunswick Group is an advisory firm specializing in corporate relations, and its Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice focuses on cyber communications preparations and cyber crisis response, as well as thought leadership campaigns.
“From Wikileaks to breaches of election databases, the past year has forced cyber security into the spotlight like never before - and government leaders must become experts at anticipating and mitigating risk,” said iConstituent CEO Zain Khan. “The next administration will face ever-evolving threats and will have to balance security and privacy as well as corporate pushback on encryption. These forums on cyber security will help new members of Congress and their staffs - as well as private sector leaders facing increased risks in a global market - quickly get up to speed on these crucial issues.”
iConstituent will host two conversations with Good Harbor’s president Emilian Papadopoulos and director Evan Sills, and Siobhan Gorman, director of Cybersecurity and Privacy at Brunswick Group, on Nov. 15 and Nov. 30, at iConstituent’s Pennsylvania Ave. offices in Washington, DC. The forums, “Cyber Security Threats and Trends,” are open to all government staff and will be broadcast live in a Telephone Town Hall broadcast by Broadnet TeleServices.
Event registration is required.
