Speaker: reg harnish

Track: IT Evolution
Day: Thursday
Room: Tuscarora
Time: 12:00 - 12:45

The pace of cybersecurity breaches has reached epic proportions. Organizations large and small are falling victim to hackers, hacktivists and nation states. Intellectual property, data and bank accounts have never been at greater risk - it's not if, but when your organization will be victimized. And while security cliché’s continue to be overplayed we see organizations learning the hard way every single day. Cybercrime is a symptom of changing social, economic, political and technological factors. And as organizations attempt to fight cybercrime with the latest technology, this technology-centric approach shows greater and greater weakness. What are we missing? What questions haven't been answered? Why is the problem getting worse? Join GreyCastle Security for a fresh and candid look at cybercrime today. This session will discuss the latest threats and solutions for security challenges in 2017, beginning with an analysis of cybercrime trends.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
