FBI veteran Joseph M. Demarest, Jr., Key Bank CEO Amy G. Brady, and Vice President and CIO of Partners HealthCare James Noga will be panelists on the upcoming discussion, “Hacked: The Threat of Cybersecurity,” on February 20, 2015 at the City Club of Cleveland.

The City Club is a vibrant, dynamic, and diverse Forum for citizens and thought leaders invested in understanding and discussing the issues and ideas that shape the region, nation, and the world. In a world of hyper-partisanship, the City Club is a beacon for reason, free speech and a vital and vigorous exchange of ideas.

The upcoming event will bring together industry leaders to discuss emerging threats to American commerce from online attacks.

In a recent speech given at the Federal Trade Commission, President Obama stated “more than 100 million Americans have had their personal data compromised” in recent breaches. Because of this, The White House is drafting legislation the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights and, separately, will propose new legislation and executive actions on corporate cybersecurity.

Learn about emerging threats and what you can do to protect your personal data from data breaches and potential hackers.

The discussion will be moderated by WCPN Morning Edition Host/Producer, Rick Jackson. Tickets are $18 for members and $30 for nonmembers.
