Turning Challenge into Opportunity: Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Privacy and Security
This is an opportunity to learn from a stellar group of experts on how to turn privacy and security challenges into opportunity. Technical, business and legal pros will give examples of innovation and entrepreneurship in this space. With massive data breaches and security gaps in the news daily, and the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) coming in May 2018, there has never been a better time to start thinking creatively about how to meet these challenges. The event will be hosted at IBM Security and will include a tour of the IBM Cybersecurity Range.
