Cybersecurity advice for President-elect Obama to be previewed at SC World Congress
What happens after a company suffers a data breach? There are strategies to take to lessen the damage, and to soothe customers whose personal information may now be at risk. And to stay out of the newspapers.
 
At next week's SC World Congress, experts will be on hand to offer techniques, strategies and procedures companies that have suffered a breach can take to lessen or minimize the damage.

Sometimes, it's not even clear when a company has been put in jeopardy.

“Defining what an incident is continues to be a challenge for organizations as they grapple with traditional data leakages and the growing threat of organized cybercriminal activity,” says Rich Baich, principal for security and privacy, Deloitte and Touche

Baich will be speaking on a panel, Breach PR -- Best Practices, taking place on Wednesday, Dec. 10, as part of the two-day SC World Congress in Javits Center, New York City.

Also on the panel are Maurice Hampton, information security program manager, GE -- Global Infrastructure Services; and Steve Collins, director, and security sector lead, Text 100 Public Relations. The moderator is Dan Kaplan, senior reporter, SC Magazine.
