About the Security Community

The question is not if you will be compromised, but when. High-profile breaches coupled with the dramatic rise in mobile devices, digital applications and the vast amount of electronic data available for exploitation have raised cybersecurity to the forefront of technology, from the boardroom to the end user. Cybersecurity is now a shared responsibility – we’re all in this together.

Local visionaries and industry leaders within the community explore topics such as:
  • The current landscape of cybersecurity threats;
  • New attacks on modern infrastructure;
  • How to reduce risk, prepare for and respond to security breaches;
  • How to work with c-suite leadership on managing your company’s cybersecurity strategy.
