"It’s difficult to hear those stories because I know that our company could have prevented many of those disasters." High Bit Security CBDO Barbara Goushaw

“I was shocked at how insidious cyber criminals can be and how massive the size of the risk.” Said Noel Nevshehir, Automation Alley Director of International Business Services. “Working with the agencies and industry experts who will be part of this conference was a stark revelation. Automation Alley was created to support and encourage Michigan technology companies. Making them aware of the risks to their vital information, and to the lifeblood of their business, is fundamental to our mission.”

High Bit Security Chief Business Development Officer, Barbara Goushaw, agrees. “Listening to the presenters from the FBI discuss their cyber investigations actually served to reinforce what we already knew – no organization is safe from cyber criminals. The anecdotes were anonymous, but the samples were very real. It’s difficult to hear those stories because I know that our company could have prevented many of those disasters. High Bit Security’s core competency is to provide penetration testing, (IT Security testing) which is widely recognized as the first and best way to secure the corporate environment. We offer our clients an efficient preventive measure, so they don’t get that nightmare visit from the FBI announcing that their records have been breached.”

Recently released security reports point to foreign state sponsored hackers as a significant source of industrial espionage though cyber theft, with the primary targets identified as aerospace, computer software, high-tech manufacturing, and energy.

Congressman Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is scheduled to keynote the event, and members of the FBI Cyber Division will share their investigative experience working with businesses that have experienced cyber theft. High Bit Security COO, Adam Goslin, will follow with: Identifying Vulnerabilities: Role of IT Security Testing and Compliance; designed to give attendees solutions for vulnerability identification and breach prevention. The conference will be moderated by Matt Roush, longtime IT reporter for Crain’s Business Detroit, and CBS radio, in addition to editing the Technology Report for WWJ AM 950.

“The information shared by the FBI, and by Congressman Rogers will be frightening and disturbing to the attendees.” said Goslin. “That’s because they are going to tell real stories about real companies that have been destroyed by cyber-criminals. High Bit Security’s message to all companies, regardless of industry, is one of prevention. It is possible to identify vulnerabilities before the bad guys do, and quickly remediate those
vulnerabilities to affect a significant improvement in your overall security posture. Your company does not have to be a victim.”

The conference is scheduled for March 18, 2013 from 12:00pm to 4:30pm. Cost to attend the conference is $20 for Automation Alley members and $40.00 for non-members. For more information or to register, please call Automation Alley at 800-427-5100 or info(at)automationalley(dot)com or visit
