in cyber security. He will talk about what happens when an entity
experiences a cyber attack and breaches regulated data. He will also

cyber security, privacy, and compliance.

management career with IBM Corporation. Under his leadership, ID Experts
has grown to become a leading provider of data breach protection,
response, and identity theft protection services. Rick has also chaired
the Public Health Information (PHI) Project, a working group made up of
members from the ANSI IDSP that focus on fraud and risk mitigation
associated with the Financial Services Roundatable, BITS, and Internet
Security Alliance. The working group developed an industry leading white
paper: “The Financial Impact of Breached Protected Health Information –
A Business Case for Enhanced PHI Security.”
This event is an excellent opportunity to learn about cyber security
entrepreneurship and the current cyber security landscape. Rick will
also be available to answer questions at the end. This event is open to
