On Thursday, December 5 in the Lawrence Room of Rosary Hall, The Palisades Institute of Dominican College is pleased to present a dialogue about cyber-security, risks, and best practices. Protecting your company's critical infrastructure and Personal Identifiable Information (PII) for customers and employees is an on-going challenge complicated by threats ranging from hackers to international espionage.

He is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the company's internet architecture, remote access, and corporate web environment. Prior to working for Con Ed, Mr. Leigh served as Global IT Compliance and Risk Officer at United Technologies Corporation where he was tasked with protecting their worldwide infrastructure.
This interactive discussion will look at the current cyber-environment and the common methods used by hackers to steal intellectual property, obtain personal information, and cause disruption and destruction.
