MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Hackers and insiders have the ability to bring entire production facilities to their knees, simply by sneaking into computers and stealing data. Attacks from cyberspace are a global threat, and we see large-scale data breaches occurring with increasing regularity. Threats are evolving to a whole new dimension since global hackers are increasingly targeting value chains. We are encountering an entire new generation of malware (malicious software) specifically designed for industrial espionage and sabotage.
Across the globe, governments, societies, businesses, and individuals are facing a number of critical challenges regarding cyberspace, data integrity, authenticity, confidentiality, and most often, trust. As a response to a rising number of cyber threats, an increasing number of governments are introducing cyber security strategies. To evaluate a German and U.S. approach to this common challenge, the German American Business Association, in collaboration with TeleTrust (IT Security Association Germany), Infineon Technologies, former Cyber Security coordinator at the Executive Office of the U.S. President, Citrix Systems, Symantec and Frost & Sullivan, brings together cyber security thought leaders for a panel discussion.
"Frost & Sullivan research and analysis shows that cybersecurity threats can lead to an economic security crisis," said Jarad Carleton, principal consultant at Frost & Sullivan and moderator of the panel. "In the U.S. we normally hear an American-centric view of security and privacy issues. The panel of experts speaking at this event will frame the challenges from a global perspective, and that is why executives doing business around the world shouldn't miss this international line up of security heavy hitters."
