August 11, 2017 – Tom Clerici, Arraya Solutions’ Director, Cyber Security, recently was given the opportunity to lead a pair of sessions at Vizo Financial’s 2017 IT and Security Conference. This annual event brings together IT and security professionals representing credit unions and financial services organizations from across the Mid-Atlantic region. Attendees are able to learn about the year’s most important technological advances and the latest tactics employed by cyber criminals directly from real world security leaders.
The first of Clerici’s two presentations detailed the anatomy of a ransomware attack. During this session, Clerici dissected an attack from the initial infection all the way through the multiple possible resolutions. He also provided attendees with actionable strategies they could use to prevent a ransomware attack in the first place.
During his second presentation, Clerici broke down what goes into developing, implementing, and maintaining a security program. He addressed some of the most common questions and sticking points encountered by those in the early stages of rolling out a security program. The issues covered included how to prioritize assets, what to make of professional certifications, how to handle vulnerability management, and much more.
“I chose these topics because, in terms of ransomware, there’s almost nothing that’s more top of mind in the industry right now,” Clerici noted. “As for the session on Information Security Programs, the topic offered a good mix of technical and nontechnical content concerning how to start building toward a more mature security posture.
“It was a pleasure to attend Vizo’s 2017 IT & Security Conference,” he added. “The attendees I encountered were engaged and extremely motivated to overcome the cyber security challenges facing them on a daily basis. I believe the sessions presented will put them on a path to do just that.”
Vizo’s 2017 IT & Security Conference took place from August 7-9. It was held at The Central Hotel in Harrisburg, PA.
