Guest Speaker and Topic

Digitisation is rapidly changing our world as we know it today.  With the number of connected objects expected to reach 50+ billion by the year 2020, attack opportunities continue to grow as well. Today's technology trends like mobility, cloud, and the Internet of Things are multiplying the points of infiltration into the company. And attackers are getting more sophisticated. They are often part of international cybercrime organisations, and they may understand your company, and your defenses, better than you do. The cultural and personal aspects of cybersecurity are the same regardless of your company size. Hear how Cisco is tackling this move to a surety culture and what you should consider as you build out your own strategy for securing your organisations.
