​As we enter 2018, cyber security and privacy breach risks are top of mind for major technology and consumer-centric organizations. Certainly, organizations that include citizens of European Union nations in their customer base are keenly focused on meeting the compliance regulations of GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, which mandates that strict new rules be addressed by May 25, 2018.

​More generally however, there is growing interest by multinational organizations here in the U.S. in how to “quantify” their cyber risks. Cyber risk is a fact of life for corporations, but it’s a challenge to assess an organization’s level of risk using a quantitative methodology. Exploring this is the purpose and topic of the 4A Data Security & Privacy Symposium at Drexel University in Philadelphia on March 22, 2018.

​Among other topics, this conference will discuss cyber risk quantification where industry thought leaders will delve into the topic using real anonymized data to demonstrate the practical application of their analyses.

​As the conference organizers describe: “This year, we have assembled a group of cyber risk quantification experts from around the world and provided them with real data from a large U.S. organization in the healthcare industry. These experts will share their insights, analyses, methods and results with attendees of the 4A Symposium. Attendees will hear from some of the world’s leading cyber risk quantification experts on various aspects of cyber risk quantification with an emphasis on practical applications.

​This topic and symposium will likely be interesting and useful for professionals across many interrelated disciplines including compliance, risk, privacy, information security and the law.
