RiskSense VP of Security Research to Discuss Financial Impacts of Cyber Pandemics at National Meeting of US Insurance Commissioners
Anand Paturi will Present Findings from Study on Leaked NSA Cyber Weapons and How to Estimate the Business Risk Exposure they Pose at NAIC Summer 2017
SUNNYVALE, Calif. and ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Aug. 1, 2017 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced its vice president of security research and engineering, Anand Paturi, will present findings from a study on the financial risk exposures associated with two recently leaked NSA cyber weapons (Double Pulsar and Eternal Blue) at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Summer 2017 National Meeting next week in Philadelphia.
WHO: Anand Paturi, vice president of security research and engineering for RiskSense, is an expert in Web application and database security, risk exposure quantification, and enterprise risk analytics. He is credited with developing one of the first cyber risk scoring models for computing devices.
WHAT: The recent Wanna Cry ransomware attack, and others, have demonstrated how quickly malware can spread across the globe and cripple businesses. The impact of these cyber attacks now extends beyond traditional IT systems into operational systems used to control industrial, manufacturing and critical infrastructures. As a result, insurers and organizations are struggling to estimate the financial and business exposure associated with these cyber pandemics. In this session, Mr. Paturi will use findings from a recent study on the NSA’s leaked Double Pulsar and Eternal Blue cyber weapons to explain how the insurance industry can use artificial intelligence and mathematical models to assess a cyber threat, it’s propagation, and potential exposure/impact.
WHEN: Antifraud (D) Task Force (Open Session). Monday, August 7 from 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM (EDT) in Grand Ballroom GH, Level 5
Antifraud (D) Task Force (Regulator Only). Monday, August 7 from 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (EDT) in Grand Ballroom K&L, Level 5
