NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Strategic Cyber Ventures (SCV), the industry's first cybersecurity focused growth fund, today announced its platinum sponsorship of a new event, Zero Day Con: Secure Your Brand, taking place on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at the Westin Grand Central Hotel in New York City. Zero Day Con is the first event of its kind and will bring together security, technology and marketing experts from around the world to discuss security strategies critical to corporate brand reputation protection.
"Cyber criminals have escalated beyond burglary to home invasion," said Tom Kellermann, CEO of SCV. "Modern cybercrime exacerbates reputational risk. This seminal conference serves as a unique forum to discuss how cybersecurity investment ensures brand protection."
After a cyber attack, the half-life of the breach continues to wreak havoc on the reputation of a company, draining brand value, customer perception, and inevitably profits. Collateral damage associated with cyber attacks in 2017 will surpass loss of information, security, and privacy. Today, cyber damage lingers far past the breach and response and causes irreparable brand damage.
"The responsibility to protect brands from cyber threats extends beyond CISOs, CTOs, and CIOs. Chief marketing officers (CMOs) must also prepare to defend their brand and company with dynamic tools and strategies to combat almost inevitable cybersecurity events," said Ronan Murphy, CEO of Smarttech. "This event brings together the industry's foremost experts on cyber brand protection to offer attendees new strategies to defend their brands in the wake of evolving cyber threats."
"Too often security professionals only talk about problems- Zero Day Con is here to change that. We are going to discuss strategies and solutions to real business problems caused by cyber intrusions, whether it is your brand or your client's brand, Zero Day Con will prepare you to take action," said Hank Thomas, COO of SCV.
Keynoted by Roland Cloutier, CSO for ADP, Zero Day Con will address cybersecurity as one of today's most challenging marketing, IT, and overall business topics.
- Gain unique insights from leading industry experts on mitigating cyber risk
- Learn how to develop a proactive strategy to defend against evolving cyber attacks;
- Discuss crisis and strategic communications before, during, and after the breach; and
- Develop significant relationships with their peers to further collaborate and continue this ongoing dialogue.
Zero Day Con will include notable presentations from Jeff Lunglhofer the CISO for BNY Mellon; Chad Holmes the CTO for Ernst and Young and Tracey Pretorius the Director for Cybersecurity at Microsoft. For a full list of speakers and more information, please visit:
