Fasoo and the New Jersey Technology Council sponsored “Closing the Threat Gap: Executive Perspectives on the Cybersecurity Landscape” at the Stevens Institute Of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey on October 26, 2016. The event featured cyber security leaders discussing the effects of internal and external threats to businesses. There was a great turnout with some existing Fasoo customers, executives, attorneys, risk officers, CISOs, IT and security professionals from numerous organizations in the greater NY area. Common feedback from the event was an appreciation for understanding the larger cyber security landscape and how everything from drones to DDOS attacks can affect their companies and personal lives.
Fasoo, in partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance, New Jersey Technology Council and Stevens Institute of Technology is hosting “Closing the Threat Gap: Executive Perspectives on the Cybersecurity Landscape” featuring Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman of the Ponemon Institute, and Mark Lobel, US and Global TICE Cybersecurity Leader at PwC. The event is at the Babbio Center, Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey on October 26, 2016 from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Fasoo successfully held its biggest event of the year, Fasoo Digital Intelligence 2016, on April 7, 2016 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. Over 500 attendees, including customers and the media, saw how Fasoo can help organizations enhance productivity and security when creating and sharing business information. The theme of the event was Lead Digital as Fasoo showed how best to provide intelligence into an ever growing digital world.
During the day, Fasoo shared recent global security trends and provided an overview of new and updated solutions that focus on increasing and improving productivity and security. Dr. Kyugon Cho, CEO of Fasoo, said, “When we make software that focuses on only security or productivity, neither is satisfied. We must consider the current digital environment and security when it comes to developing software to include both productivity and security in our software at the very beginning. This will be Fasoo’s core philosophy in doing business.”
Recently I was in a meeting with a global pharmaceutical client in New Jersey who told me of the importance they place on their highly secure, centrally managed and monitored persistent security platform to protect against data theft and ensure that their valuable R&D information cannot be lost or inadvertently sent to a competitor.
As the meeting ended, I was informed of the news about the charges brought against five people in the Untied States around trade secret theft inside another global pharmaceutical company. Allegedly a senior level manager at the company was involved in this theft.
Given the global state of business competition, there is a special appeal to the cyber thugs with high-priced or high-demand items. There is an alarming interest in stealing intellectual property, trade secrets and exactly how these items are produced.
