"Cybersecurity for Competitive Advantage"
Automobile racing goes from smooth sailing to out of control in a very short time span. So, does cybersecurity. Attend this session and learn from someone that had a "resume generating event" due to one of the largest data breaches of the past several years (Target), and what could have been done beforehand to prevent the breach from ever taking place. Many companies find that the budget required to bring necessary focus to technology security, can be very elusive, and the user experience is often in opposition to security "best practices." This session will help you overcome both obstacles in your company.
Attendees can expect to take away:
- Real world lessons learned from major recent cybersecurity breaches and how they could have been prevented
- How to respond to a cybersecurity incident from a non-technical standpoint: public relations, law enforcement involvement, and contract negotiation with vendors
- How to develop an emotional connection with teams in times of crisis
- How to make new regulations into a competitive advantage for your company
- That new technologies offer to combine an improved user experience with tightened security
