"Creating Digital Resilience in the Midst of Chaos"
Wednesday | August 8th | 10:00 - 10:50 AM
North Hall, South Pacific IJ, Mandalay Bay
Now that we've made the quantum leap from analog to digital, we're faced with a hyper connected world. In this brave new world, we're leaking personal data like a sieve, our information is virtually kidnapped by ransomware attacks, and if that's not enough fun, we're facing crypto mining attacks and wondering what our own employees are doing to us as insiders. In spite of this, there continues to be technology innovation and a thriving tech sector. In this workshop, learn what you can do beyond blocking and tackling, and using security technology as a panacea. Learn about the factors that make up digital resilience and let's debate the best practices that get us out of the game of Whac-A-Mole.
