Call for Participation Open to New York’s Critical Infrastructure Conference




New York, NY (November 1, 2017) -- Hack NYC 2018 (www.hacknyc.com) has opened a call for training and topics to shape one of the most important conversations in cybersecurity today: Fortifying Critical National Infrastructure.  


The recent flood of data breaches has diverted our attention from systems that impact literally every industry: government, healthcare, finance, transportation, energy, law, policy.


“State-based attacks against critical infrastructure have disrupted power supply in countries like the Ukraine, and in the US companies working in energy have been under persistent attack for the past several months. The immediacy of this threat makes it even more urgent that we draw the cybersecurity communities attention,” said Khizar A. Sheikh, Esq., Chair of the cybersecurity, privacy, and data law group at Mandelbaum Salsburg, P.C. “Hack NYC offers an opportunity for agencies and companies providing vital community services to interface with the broader cybersecurity community.”


Khizar is one of over 35 professionals in cybersecurity, emergency management, and law enforcement already supporting Hack NYC. One of the only cybersecurity conferences on the East Coast, the second annual Hack NYC will be held May 7-10, 2018 at Microsoft’s Technology Center in Times Square, New York.
