We are extremely proud to announce, Brian Krebs, the world’s most influential security blogger and bestselling author of Spam Nation, as our keynote speaker.
What Breaches Teach Us
The daily drumbeat of data spills, breaches and thefts can foster breach fatigue, apathy and cynicism among even the most hardy security professionals. What sets in is a suspicion that all our efforts are for naught and that we are perpetually a step behind the bad guys. In truth, most of these incidents are not only preventable, but they take months or years to bubble up. This talk will examine some of the more alarming trends in cybercrime today and offer some perspectives on how businesses, consumers and infosec pros can up their game in response.
