Securing the Enterprise - Cybersecurity Conference

October 31, 2018

Co-hosted by             

Please join MIT’s Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and BT for a one-day conference where global security professionals, government officials, and academic experts will discuss responses to key issues and opportunities with Cybersecurity in management, policy, technology, society, training and education. The conference will feature discussions with global experts, keynotes and informative expert-led discussions followed by a networking reception with MIT startups, our speakers and guests.

Securing the Enterprise: What’s Next

Cyber-attacks are threatening organizations and governments’ critical infrastructure. As researchers and industry leaders work diligently to develop new technologies and strategies that thwart these attacks, cyber criminals are becoming increasingly more innovative. Sophisticated threats have elevated cyber security to a boardroom issue, impacting public and private organizations across all sectors. Security is no longer about just locking down networks.

On October 31st, MIT CSAIL, with the support of BT, is bringing together global security professionals, government officials and world-renowned researchers for an important discussion on the current and future threat landscape. We'll explore the latest cutting-edge research out of MIT coupled with insights from industry leaders and government officials who are in the field developing and implementing technologies and strategies needed to protect organizations.

Bring your teams and join us for this important dialogue on what's next in cyber security and how to be prepared.

BT – MIT COLLABORATION:
BT and MIT have enjoyed active research collaborations for over 30 years, focusing on emerging opportunities in technology, business and policy.

MIT CSAIL:
MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is committed to doing groundbreaking work in computing. CSAIL researchers have played key roles in developing innovations like the World Wide Web, RSA encryption, Ethernet and much of the technology underlying the Internet.

MIT CSAIL is home to the Cybersecurity@CSAIL initiative and the Internet Policy Research Initiative (IPRI). CSAIL believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to cybersecurity, bringing together world-renowned leaders in the security specialties of cryptography, hardware and software. CSAIL researchers approach security from all sides: programming languages, software verification, computer architecture, crypto, systems, and policy. Our goal is to create security “by default” and remove program error as a source of vulnerability. We are working to design protocols to make attacks more difficult, retain function despite attacks, and allow a system to recover quickly from an attack.

BT, A LEADER IN CYBERSECURITY:
With 2600 people and operations in over 180 countries supporting some of the world’s largest companies, nation states and critical national infrastructures, BT is a leading provider of managed security services and an expert in cybersecurity, together with a long and proven history in cybersecurity innovation. We ensure customers thrive in a digital world with the knowledge that they are protected with world-class security solutions.Learn more about BT’s Cybersecurity services here.
