Keynote: The Hacker's Blacklist - Top Threats & Countermeasures for Data Security

8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
The heart of good security training starts with the human beings that help it flourish—or fail.
To avoid becoming the next disastrous data-breach headline, you must foster, for yourself and your clients, a healthy balance between computer security and human behavior. Cybersecurity isn't just about spending more money on shinier technology - it's about nudging your entire team beyond awareness and into action. It's about creating energy and buy-in among the people who handle your mission-critical information every day. This crash course forges a high-level, non-technical path through the sometimes confusing web of cyber security threats, human decision making, network security, mobile technology, the Internet of Things, social media and cloud computing—critical components of your business success. When it comes to the latest data security trends, you can’t possibly do everything—but you must do the right things. This highly-interactive presentation begins with John’s story of losing everything to cybercrime and ends with an actionable roadmap of cyber defense next steps to protect the information that drives your organization and that of your clients.
In The Hacker's Blacklist, Cybersecurity Expert John Sileo will help you:
• Answer the critically important "WHY" of security training before explaining the "HOW TO"
• Clarify answers to questions like "What is cyber security?" and "How does cyber security work?"
• Convert "humans as your weakest link" into your greatest competitive advantage
• Prioritize threat trends, such as ransomware, cyber blackmail, Internet of Things, and Denial of Service (DDoS)
• Detect, reflect and react to social engineering & fraud tools from phishing to pre-texting
• Build a tactical whitelist of critical data, necessary computer security conversations and next steps
• Leave the presentation energized to change behaviors and implement key learnings
