Cybersecurity and the Latest Trends in Industrial Espionage


Please join us on Thursday, March 17 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. for a dynamic conversation with Noel Nevshehir, Director of Global Strategic Partnerships and International Business Services, Automation Alley and Ben Simon, Special Agent Cyber Command, FBI.

Cyberattacks have become even more sophisticated and harder to spot during the digitally driven pandemic and shift to remote work. The acceleration of threats has  been aided by the emergence of technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, machine learning, 5G, and greater tactical and strategic cooperation among hacker groups and state actors. Their impact on U.S. business, economic, and national security cannot be understated. Worldwide, the annualized cost of cybercrime was an estimated $6 trillion in 2021. If measured by a country’s GDP, cybercrime would be the world’s third-largest economy after the United States and China.

Mr. Benjamin Simon, Special Agent of the FBI’s Cyber Command, will discuss how to protect yourself from hackers and, equally important, what you can do if you detect a network intrusion. He will also explain the role his organization plays in protecting trade secrets and other critical data from being poached by hackers targeting U.S. business and industry, government, and academic institutions. In addition, much of the focus has been on companies protecting their perimeter from external threats. Yet, like shoplifting from a brick and mortar store, much of the data stolen today occurs from within an enterprise or from a ‘trusted’ supply chain partner. Whether ransomware or malware, developing  strategies to mitigate these risks are critical to your company’s future survival.
