A decade-long battle with the Federal Government over a false notification of a cybersecurity leak gave Michael Daugherty a lifetime of experience in cybersecurity and federal law. Today, Daugherty, as President of the Cyber Education Foundation, is pleased to announce the first in a national series of Cyber Culture Summits, created to educate corporate America in the legal ramifications of cyber-attacks and led by the nation’s top cybersecurity experts.

Daugherty’s message to all of corporate America is:

Your organization is going to get attacked. It’s not “if”, but “when”. The only question is, how will your organization handle it? Your organization, not your CISO or security department. I say that because the world has changed and cybersecurity is not one person’s job. Cybersecurity must be the corporate culture.

In 2008, Michael Daugherty’s small business was destroyed by the Federal Trade Commission based on false pretenses. Ten years later, a judge ruled that the FTC acted in bad faith on bad information, and ruled in favor of Daugherty’s business, LabMD.

 “We are going to share everything we learned over the last ten years so we can change the way businesses approach the security of their data and – more importantly – their customers’ data,” added Daugherty.


Events Across The US

The inaugural Cyber Culture event will take place in Atlanta on January 22, 2019, at Atlanta Tech Village. Michael Daugherty will lead a team of cybersecurity and legal experts, including Doug Meal of the Law Firm Ropes & Gray, who was recently called “the greatest cybersecurity attorney in the US”. Mr. Meal represented Mr. Daugherty and LabMD in winning the case against the FTC.

“You’d pay Doug $1,500 an hour for his legal advice. At Cyber Culture, executives can spend an entire day with Doug and other cybersecurity experts for less than $400,” says Daugherty.
