CYBERSECURITY BIPEDALISM:
THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF RISK, RESILIENCE AND REALITY

Cybersecurity is evolving. As with any young industry, cybersecurity has its share of growing pains. Mistakes, mystery, and even all out failure are common, but these stumbling blocks aren’t unique to cybersecurity. Even mankind needed to learn to crawl before it could walk and, just like our ancestors before us, the cybersecurity industry is finally standing on its own two feet. Evolution demands both constant change and the strength of will to persevere in challenging times. In this new age of “Cybersecurity Bipedalism,” we see exciting milestones being reached every day as the industry marches forward.

Join GreyCastle Security, nationally-recognized cybersecurity experts, and experienced industry professionals in a conversation about the evolution of cybersecurity, cybercrime, trust-based decision making, and how the corporate world reacts to cyberattacks. Attendees will be presented with insights into the bright future of cybersecurity and new strategies for protecting valuable assets.

BUSINESS TRACK

Corporate America is taking a security beating. Organizations large and small, in every industry, are falling victim to hackers, insider threats, and even inattentive employees. This staggering increase in cybercrime, coupled with dramatic increases in government regulations, have left more businesses vulnerable to both auditors and hackers. Developing an effective cybersecurity program and response plan has never been more important.

TECHNICAL TRACK

Your intellectual property, data and bank accounts have never been at greater risk. In today’s digital environment, it’s not if you’ll be the target of a cyberattack – it’s when. Having a clear picture of today’s complicated security infrastructure and understanding risk are the only ways to build an effective security strategy while utilizing finite resources.
