Cybersecurity Experts Urge Diligence at Portland Conference


From a Maine nonprofit group's leak of confidential data in February, to the May 9 discovery that a worldwide gang of criminals stole $45 million by hacking into a database of prepaid debit cards, information security problems are a widespread concern these days.

A group of national experts is in Portland this week to discuss ways of dealing with cybercrime and other information-technology risks.

The 11th annual Excellence in Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Conference runs through Thursday at the Portland Regency Hotel. The meeting is expected to draw about 80 people from banking, insurance, health-care and other industries.
