WHAT: The Milken Institute turns ideas into real-world initiatives that address some of society’s greatest challenges: widening access to capital, creating jobs and improving health. More than 3,500 world leaders, financiers, philanthropists, Fortune 500 executives, scientists and celebrities from 60-plus countries, all senior leaders in their fields, offering significant ideas on how we can address the rapid changes in the finance and business sectors and solve some of the world’s most pressing social issues.
WHY: Cybersecurity: Protecting Companies and Citizens from Assault will cover high-profile cyberattacks of banks, retailers and health care providers, which reveal how vulnerable businesses and their customers are to hackers. The efficiency of electronic data networks is beyond question, but they also create new security concerns. In the business world, companies risk losing sales if consumers aren’t satisfied that confidential information is safe. Cybersecurity also is critical to government efforts to monitor the communications and movements of terror organizations. How can the government and private business work together to protect privacy and keep the nation safe from attack? How can we balance security concerns with the need for data to move freely between businesses and their customers? This panel will discuss the threats that lurk in cyberspace and steps that are being taken to counter them.
