According to experts, the widespread hacking we saw in 2016 was just the beginning of a growing problem. With a near-daily increase of our reliance on technology, organizations are more at risk from cyber actors than ever before.
What can you do to protect your data? Which threats are most pressing? How can you reduce the likelihood that you’ll be targeted? These five speakers cover hacking, geopolitics, and cyber defense:
For a break down of the current threat landscape and what can be done to fight back:
Alex Stamos is a cyber security expert, business leader and entrepreneur whose career has focused on improving the security and safety of the Internet. The former Chief Security Officer of Facebook and the former Chief Information Security Officer at Yahoo, he is currently an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University, where his teaching and research focuses on international security and cooperation. During his time at Facebook, Stamos led a threat intelligence team of engineers, researchers, investigators, and analysts charged with understanding and mitigating information security risks to the company and safety risks to the 2.5 billion people on Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. The New York Times called Stamos “a celebrated figure in privacy and security circles,” and Tech Crunch said he is “widely regarded as one of the smartest people working in the security space.”
