PLEASANTVILLE, N..Y --Not enough is being done to protect your data.

That was the consensus of experts at a conference at Pace University Friday to discuss cybersecurity. The conference was hosted by Pace's Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems and the Business Council of Westchester.

Cyrus Vance, Manhattan district attorney, said cybercrime accounts for more than a third of all felony cases handled by his office.

“The way we used to deal with cybercrime is not going to cut it anymore,” he said.  “I’m not sure our country understand how serious this threat is."

Timothy Lunderman, a brigadier general in the Air Force, said businesses need to determine the “key terrain” to protect rather than focusing on protecting all their data because there is too much.

“If I was a bank, the money might be the key terrain,’’ said Lunderman. “Focus on what makes the business run.’’

Marsha Gordon, president, and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester said members are concerned about cybersecurity.

“We hear from businesses all the time about cybersecurity threats,’’ said Gordon.
