After two fantastic and exciting years in Chicago and our first ever event in Atlanta late last year, our US Cyber Security event series will be using 2019 as an investment and R&D year. The teams at Cyber Security Chicago and Cyber Security Atlanta will spend this time in deep research mode, analysing the changing market and consulting with cyber security teams, analysts, vendors and researchers across the USA with a roadmap of launching an evolved proposition in 2020.
The world of cyber security is changing at an ever faster rate and there is no doubt that securing our new hyper connected world whilst supporting privacy/compliance is increasing in both its complexity and importance. With this in mind, we want to invest more resources in to developing a next generation event, built from the ground up to support businesses in this sensational new world.
As part of our research, we’ll be working with our speakers, visitors, partners and exhibitors to build the perfect event experience and would love to hear from you if you want to become part of our steering committee. In the meantime, we will be producing a monthly newsletter to keep you up to date on latest industry developments and the details of our future shows,
We’ll be back soon.
The Cyber Security Team
Just when cyber security professionals figure out how to combat and guard against one type of attack, another stronger malware attacks an unsuspecting — and unprepared — network. Newer, more evolved attacks are designed to skirt antivirus software and firewalls and access a targeted network.
Identity and access management tends to be a balancing act for information technology professionals. They want their networks to be secure, but they don’t want to deal with complaints from fellow employees that it is cumbersome and too time-consuming to log on to a network. For example, frequently changed, hard-to-remember passwords might be a hindrance to workers, but they often are crucial for blocking hackers from accessing a network.
