The CIO Exchange: Securing Silicon Valley

From external threats to inside actors, securing today’s technology sector has never been more vital. In order to fight against the next wave of cyber threats, one must understand the evolving landscape, how to educate and collaborate with your workforce, and what technologies can be used to identify potential attacks or flag internal movements.

This June, Bloomberg will convene a peer community of C-level technology executives across Silicon Valley to examine the common goals for all security aspects of their businesses.

The discussion with this select group will lead up to the second annual CIO Exchange this fall, which returns to Nasdaq in New York for another highly informative day of programming, geared specifically towards c-suite tech leadership, across industries.

Senior Bloomberg Journalists and Bloomberg Intelligence Analysts will bring together the leading minds in tech to discuss, and dig into the data, that allows delegates to be drivers of innovation now, find out where enterprises can benefit from cloud technology, and look to uncover the next evolution of security advancements

Combating the Next Wave of Threats

For today's companies and senior leadership, there is clear landscape of cyber threats from outside actors, but something not being talked about as much is how to protect against insider threats -- those sent from foreign countries to infiltrate U.S. companies and steal information that is then used by intelligence services overseas. In order to fully grasp this next wave of threats and fight against them, one must understand what to look for, how you can educate and collaborate with your current workforce, and what technologies if any, can be used to identify such bad actors or internal movements. We'll gather leaders across the C-suite and security industry with the goal of identifying a new framework.
