CAMS Directors Stuart Madnick and Keri Pearlson were invited to be part of SIBOS TV, and were interviewed as part of the conference.

What we Learned from Analyzing the Capital One Breach

CAMS Director Stuart Madnick presented research on the Capital One Breach. The 2019 Capital One breach was the result of a pervasive lack of controls from establishing an effective risk assessment to the design and implementation of their cloud migration initiative. Over 106 million people were impacted, resulting in a hefty civil penalty suit. What happened was clear, but why it happened was not. Prof. Stuart discussed how proven methodologies can help mitigate risks in organizations.
