Not If But When – Effectively Countering Cybersecurity Threats


The Internet has unquestionably changed the paradigm of business from one person shops to Fortune 10 global behemoths, providing exceptional means to disrupt competition via reduced costs, expanded markets, accelerated timeliness and an overall leveraging of capabilities. Yet the flip-side to this concentration of opportunities, when one’s status as a target is magnified as firms from Equifax and Target on down have learned, is to be on the receiving end of a cyber-attack.

This month will feature an expert who has guided many clients through the steps for managing such threats, from immediate crisis response to longer term risk management to minimize potential catastrophes. While conversant with the technical details of the involved information systems, discussion will be geared to decision makers and the choices needed to implement practical policies in context.


Andy Liuzzi, Executive Vice President, Edelman

As EVP/head of Edelman’s Crisis & Risk Management Practice, Andy’s hybrid role is to help clients proactively mitigate issues and risks as well as to implement long-term reputation management strategies. Regarding data security and privacy, he has addressed ransomware, cyber attacks, hacktivists, lost devices with sensitive information, and IP theft. His background includes: strategic counsel and execution across a broad range of operational, strategic, and crisis management engagements, high profile litigation assignments and comprehensive public strategy campaigns. Andy joined Edelman’s Reputation Management Group after six years in the Corporate practice of Manning Selvage & Lee in Chicago. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Virginia.
