“Preventing, detecting and responding to cybersecurity risks in today’s environment is a never-ending challenge, but one businesses can successfully manage with the right expert help and guidance,” said Thomas Lewis, CEO of CyberMaxx.

While widespread debate and controversy grows regarding the fairness of the $700M settlement reached last month for one of the largest breaches in history, it is easy to forget that business leaders can still learn many important lessons about what really happened in the summer of 2017.

The former SVP and Chief Information Officer for Equifax’s Global Corporate Platforms, Graeme Payne, will be visiting Nashville during the annual InfoSec Security Conference being held September 13th at Music City Center. Mr. Payne has first-hand knowledge of living through a major cybersecurity breach and testified to Congress and regulators following the breach.

Mr. Payne’s visit is being sponsored by CyberMaxx and LBMC Information Security, nationally recognized leaders in cybersecurity and headquartered in Nashville. Graeme will be a featured speaker at an invitation-only event being held the evening of September 12th and hosted by CyberMaxx. Business leaders and media representatives interested in attending this event may email Lisa Burke, Director of Client Success at CyberMaxx (lburke@cybermaxx.io), for more information. Additionally, Mr. Payne will be at the LBMC Information Security exhibitor booth from 11am to 12:30pm on Sep 13th to meet conference attendees and sign copies of his new book.

“Preventing, detecting and responding to cybersecurity risks in today’s environment is a never-ending challenge, but one businesses can successfully manage with the right expert help and guidance. We believe Graeme’s message is critically important for all businesses to hear, internalize and take action on to protect their organizations from financial and reputational loss. We are thrilled and honored that he decided to accept our invitation,” said Thomas Lewis, CEO of CyberMaxx.

According to CSO Online, the industry with the highest number of attacks by ransomware is the healthcare industry. Attacks on healthcare are forecasted to quadruple by 2020 and the financial impacts of cyber-attacks have risen by over 60% over the last ten years.
