Cybersecurity is more important than ever as people shift their behaviors in light of COVID. Several CISOs from merchant member companies will join Mastercard CISO Ron Green during MAG’s virtual Tech Forum on October 14 to discuss what keeps them up at night and how they address emerging security threats across their businesses.

Being the cyber guardian for a merchant today may seem like a constant game of whack-a-mole, with robust security teams constantly defending against increasingly sophisticated hackers and other nefarious threats. Layer on top of that the cyber security talent shortage, Covid-19 challenges, cyber threat intelligence sharing, and the complexity of cloud security, and you have an endlessly shifting role of the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO). For the Tech Forum Keynote session in October, a panel of industry leaders, CISOs from our very own MAG merchants, will have an open dialogue to discuss “Their view from the Hot Seat.” Ron Green, CSO MasterCard, will moderate the discussion. Ron is an expert in his field and brings forth experiences like fighting cyber-crime and computer forensics while in the Secret Service. Ron previously worked at Bank of America, building out their cyber investigations program and electronic discovery programs and FIS before MasterCard tapped his shoulder. He is the perfect moderator to lead a discussion of this caliber. Reserve your Tech Forum spot today and attend this cutting-edge session on October 14!
