Melissa Ventrone to chair DRI data security conference

July 15, 2016

Cybersecurity practice group leader Melissa Ventrone will serve as program chair of the DRI conference “Data Management and Security: Understanding and Controlling Cybersecurity Risks,” which will be held in Atlanta on Sept. 21-23, 2016.

Conference programming will focus on ways that technologists can engage in long-term, strategic planning to understand the cyber risks that are on the horizon and communicate them to company executives. Industry leaders from the technological and legal sectors – including Thompson Coburn Chief Information Officer Phil Rightler – will provide concrete examples and advice on how technologists can identify and integrate organizational goals into their operations.

Phil will present a session on “Security Metrics: How Do You Measure Enterprise Cybersecurity Success?” addressing how regulators measure success and how to quantify qualitative risks and measure ROI.

The seminar also will provide updates on emerging regulatory trends and litigation, including cross-border data transfer concerns, new case law, and recent regulatory changes. Additionally, attendees will learn about risks inherent in emerging technologies, and how to identify and address them effectively.
