Interhack Adds Litigation Perspective to State Cyber Security Symposium

— filed under: ,

Columbus, OH—Representatives from agencies of the State of Ohio gather on October 5, 2011 in downtown Columbus for a Cyber Security Symposium in honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Their aim is to meet the challenge to protect state data. Interhack computer security expert Matthew Curtin is invited to speak about strategies to handle data adroitly to defend an entity against security incidents and in litigation. 

In ten years, information security has gone from the basement to the boardroom. — C. Matthew Curtin, Founder, Interhack Corp.

The meeting is organized by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The program is especially geared toward Chief Information Officers of state agencies in Ohio. 

Electronic discovery is a legal process that now is often supported by information security departments. When security incidents occur organizations suffering from attack often find themselves defending against litigation after the fact. Curtin's discussion Defending Your Agency on the Internet and in the Courtroom will address the process of electronic discovery, the role of technical experts in litigation, and how security departments can provide their agencies with the protection that they need. 

C. Matthew Curtin is the founder of the computer expert firm Interhack. His practice helps attorneys and executives understand and make use of computer technology and relevant data. He works extensively in litigation and IT crisis management throughout the country, often called as an expert witness in criminal, civil, and administrative matters. He is the author of two books on security and cryptography and a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University.
