Cyber Security - A Wake-Up Call
As cyber criminals have made global headlines in 2010, the threat from this growing menace is causing a fundamental shift in how information security professionals define protection of their company's most valuable digital assets. No longer can a large corporation depend on the aspect of perimeter defense, as we’ve seen some of the greatest risks to business’s most valuable data,  have come from the enemy within. International Organized Crime has leveraged the Internet to routinely raid our nation’s largest corporations and pilfer terabytes of intellectual property. The threat from malware such as Zeus has undermined our confidence in tried and true security controls such as anti-virus. Consumers and business have recorded record losses from Internet crime and there seems to be no end in sight to the speed and complexity of the attacks.

Daniel Conroy

Daniel Conroy
Managing Director and Head of the Information Security Group
BNY Mellon Corporation
ISE® Northeast Executive Award Finalist 2010

Social Media  > Download Presentation
Daniel Conroy will present his role as the champion of a project to control BNY Mellon’s internal social media and collaborative tools. Many corporations have adopted and implemented policies concerning the appropriate use of web-facing social networking sites, such as Facebook, MySpace, and LinkedIn.  However, few, if any, organizations have established policies regarding the implementation and use of social networking sites resident on a corporate intranet.  These forms of social media, available only to internal staff, may contain personal profiles (usually offering basic biographical information, together with a photograph), blogs, chat forums, and other interactive features.  Because these internal sites may be readily accessible, and because they pose the risk of serving as repositories of sensitive information, Daniel will share how he and his team established and implemented a policy pertaining to the creation and use of internal social media.
