ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viewpost, the secure B2B network for electronic invoicing, payments and real-time cash management, today announced that Chief Security Officer and General Counsel Dr. Chris Pierson will be giving two presentations at the upcoming RSA Conference on cybersecurity, which will take place February 13-17 in San Francisco.
Speaking at the RSA Conference
Having given a dozen speeches that push cybersecurity thought leadership at RSA events in the past, Pierson is an RSA Conference “top-rated speaker.” During a panel discussion on who will oversee private-sector cybersecurity under President Trump, Pierson will be joined by two fellow industry experts:
- Stewart Baker, current partner at Steptoe & Johnson LLP and former Assistant Secretary of DHS for Policy and former General Counsel of the NSA
- Mark Weatherford, current cybersecurity strategist at vArmour and former Deputy Under Secretary for Cybersecurity at DHS
They will discuss a range of issues, from cybersecurity incident response to who has the legal and regulatory authority to respond in a cyberattack, and issues involving private-sector critical infrastructure and their needs and concerns.
“I am excited to engage with other thought leaders and strategists, operational CISOs and security professionals again this year,” said Pierson. “The RSA Conference features the deepest strategic minds, the newest next-generation technology and the greatest assortment of public and private sector peers solving difficult cybersecurity problems.”
Added Viewpost CEO Max Eliscu, “Viewpost is proud to support Dr. Pierson’s continued thought leadership on cybersecurity and privacy at the RSA Conference, as these issues affect the nation’s businesses and the national security of critical infrastructure every day. The same thought leadership, strategy and dedication he brings to these global challenges is what we experience at Viewpost—and ultimately have baked into our company DNA.”
Pierson will also be speaking on the “Changing Regulatory Approaches to Big Data” as it relates to consumers with regulatory attorney James Shreve from BuckleySandler LLP. As the speed of data increases and big data projects become the norm, companies and regulators are more focused on this emerging area.
More than 45,000 cybersecurity professionals attend RSA globally each year, making it the largest and most respected cybersecurity event in the world.
