A parallel shift is happening in the security world, as threats and attackers become more sophisticated, cyberespionage becomes a real-world concern, and a new data breach makes headlines practically each day.
As technology becomes increasingly personal and intrusive into our private lives, the consequences of security failures will be more severe. This talk will explain how we got here, where we’re heading, why the hacking community plays a pivotal role, and how to protect yourself when the lines between public and private blur.
