SNS: Predictions Dinner: US Cyber Security Chief to Discuss ‘Economic Cyberwar’

Strategic News Service (SNS) announced today that the Department of Homeland Security’s Director of Global Cyber Security Management, Richard H.L. Marshall, Esq. will be the featured guest in the centerpiece conversation of its 6th annual NY Predictions Dinner. The dinner will take place in New York City, December 9, 2010 at the Waldorf=Astoria Hotel.

Marshall currently serves as the Director of Global Cyber Security Management, Department of Homeland Security.

He is a member of the Senior Cryptologic Executive Service (SES), and oversees the execution of the DHS Software Assurance, Standards and Best Practices, Supply Chain Risk Management, and Training and Education programs at the national level. He was previously the senior Information Assurance (IA) representative, Office of Legislative Affairs at the National Security Agency (NSA). He also represented NSA in the National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Program in the Boston and Detroit areas, where he led the effort to establish an International Consortium on Information Assurance. Marshall was recently recognized by CS Magazine as the nation’s most influential cyber-security professional.

“We are delighted that Richard can join us for a fascinating evening of predictions. I very much look forward to hearing his ideas on economics and cyber security, a subject that becomes more relevant by the minute,” said Mark Anderson, Founder and CEO of SNS, and Chair of the Future in Review (FiRe) Conferences.

Each year Anderson announces his top 10 predictions for the coming year at the NY Predictions Dinner. This prediction set, graded publicly each year for six years, is currently proving to be 95.4% accurate. During the 2009 SNS Predictions Dinner, Anderson correctly predicted Microsoft’s impending consumer losses outside of the gaming industry, and the cloud catastrophe that befell Google servers just weeks later, raising security issues and restricting enterprise trust.
