A recent poll found that cyber security ranks second only to terrorist attacks on a list of U.S. security fears. Yet, 91% of Americans say that consumers have lost control over how personal information is collected and used by companies. From the hacking of the DNC and Olympic athletes to increasingly frequent data breaches at top companies, join us at the 2016 Global Business Summit to find out how today's cyber threats impact you, your community or business, and our nation's security. Trey Herr, Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School's Cyber Security Project, will outline why conflicts over information are increasing online, how attacks are carried out by state and non-state groups,and what the public sector can do to address our vulnerabilities. A panel of local business leaders will then discuss how the state and region can best prepare for future cyber threats.
