About this talk

At most private equity firms, CIOs lack visibility into the security operations across all their portfolio companies. The fact is that portfolio companies have limited knowledge of their cyber risks and an equally limited cybersecurity budget. Unfortunately, cybercriminals understand this Private Equity/Portfolio Company dynamic well and many take advantage of limited visibility and budgets to execute targeted ransomware attacks that can disrupt business operations and damage brand reputation. Unless you’re prepared to defend against modern ransomware threats, your portfolio companies could be locked out of critical systems and applications for days. The resulting downtime can cost your firm $225K per day in downtime costs alone Join this exclusive Private Equity Threat Summit, to listen to: - Private Equity Threat Briefing Presented by Ryan Westman, Senior Manager, Threat Intelligence, eSentire Ryan will share our latest intelligence and research based on global threat hunts across eSentire’s global Private Equity customer base. - A Fireside Chat with Alex Manea, CISO at Georgian Hosted by Eldon Sprickerhoff, Founder and Advisor, eSentire Eldon and Alex will discuss the main cybersecurity challenges and top concerns Private Equity CISOs face, and share experiences and insights security leaders can leverage to address these challenges. - Customer Perspectives Presented by Mark Benaquista, Managing Partner, Thomas H.
