Entrust CEO and Congressman Burgess Outline Cyber Defense Needs

Without clear protection and guidelines, small- to mid-sized enterprises need to defend assets against online attacks, cybersecurity expert says

ENTRUST LOGO / Entrust logo. (PRNewsFoto/Entrust, Inc.)DALLAS, Aug. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Entrust, Inc., a global leader in securing online identities and information, today participated in a cybersecurity forum in Highland Village, Texas. Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner joined U.S. Congressman Michael C. Burgess (TX-26), M.D., as well as University of North Texas senior technology director Charlotte Russell, and Gold’s Gym Senior Vice President and CIO Bill Wade, to discuss how small- to mid-sized businesses can protect themselves against cyber attacks.

“Unfortunately, today’s small- and mid-sized businesses do not have the same protection as large corporations and individuals, so it is extremely important that smaller enterprises make cybersecurity a priority,” said Conner. “In this economy, security may fall by the wayside, but the cost to deploy it is dwarfed by the cost of what’s at stake. Businesses do not know where an attack will come from, so it is crucial that they have cyber defense measures in place, as they could be struck with a large financial loss or take a credibility hit with their customers.”

The forum was hosted by the Flower Mound, Texas, and Lewisville, Texas, chambers of commerce, and the Highland Village Business Association. The event’s speakers and panel discussion focused on what measures small- to mid-sized businesses need to have in place to protect against cybersecurity attacks.

“Having a defense against cyber attacks is critical for organizations of all sizes,” said Conner. “Cyber criminals will search for any hole in a company’s security measures and take advantage of it, utilizing such channels as online banking. This is cyber warfare and it takes everyone — government, major organizations, small businesses and individuals — working together to win.”
