Breaking and Entering: A Hacker’s Guide to Restoring Consumer Trust – Sponsored by CDW
May 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Data Breaches. Privacy Exposures. Questionable Ethics. Today’s technology news is dominated with spectacular storylines that would make even the most daring screenwriter raise an incredulous brow. Pinnacles of brand success, such as Facebook and Google, are experiencing a consumer trust crisis resulting from failures to protect consumer privacy. The concept of “digital transformation” makes it possible to collect and use information in remarkable new ways, but it also increases the risk that the information could be compromised or abused.
As organizations seek to better monetize their business capabilities, requirements for data and privacy protection can seem inhibitive. How can technology be applied to uphold consumer trust and satisfaction while simultaneously supporting continued business evolution? Join real-world hacker and security evangelist Alyssa Miller as she identifies critical issues that have prevented businesses from adequately meeting the standards of security and privacy their customers have come to expect. Likewise, she will use her unique perspective to share a new strategic framework for designing cybersecurity defenses that ensure the protection of all forms of critical assets and enables new growth opportunities.
