Celebrate CyberSecurity Month at EDGE2016 Security Conference
October is National CyberSecurity Awareness Month and Sword & Shield is doing its part by hosting the first annual EDGE Security Conference – a world-class regional conference that will bring IT security professionals together with business leaders to work through today’s cybersecurity challenges.
Even though October is awareness “month,” cybersecurity is a crucial component of our lives and should be observed year round. We are constantly connected and enjoy the freedom and efficiency of the Internet, but this constant connectivity brings increased risks of theft, fraud and abuse.
At EDGE2016, speakers will discuss issues business leaders face when trying to protect client and intellectual data, meeting regulatory compliance, defending their networks from intrusion and limiting their risk.
Keynote speakers Theresa Payton and Kevin Poulsen will discuss data breaches, how they impact your bottom line, and methods cybercriminals use to steal your privacy and corrupt your online security.
EDGE2016 attendees will learn about:
- Advanced Open Source Security
- Healthcare Data Protection
- Insider Threats
- Simplifying Payment Card Industry (PCI) Protection
- The Security of our Power Grids and Government Networks
- Cyber Insurance
- Securing the Cloud
- Overall Network Security
The choices you make to secure your networks and data are crucial in the protection of your finances, identity and privacy in the digital world.
Educating ourselves about the potential risks facing companies today is important, but putting IT security practitioners together with business leaders in the real world to solve the problems is just the environment EDGE2016 hopes to provide.
So, this year, for cybersecurity awareness month, join us at the Crowne Plaza in Knoxville Oct. 18-19 to identify and address today’s security challenges.
