Does the thought of being hacked keep you up at night?

167 million LinkedIn user account details are currently for sale on the dark web. There’s no industry, no organization and no classification of software that is immune to the predatory antics of hackers. Brian Pontarelli, CEO of Inversoft, will cover in detail a series of guidelines and steps to harden servers and applications to protect against these types of attacks. More specifically, this session will cover server architecture, firewalling, intrusion detection, password security, social hacks, SQL injections and more so you can leave knowing how to protect your user data – and get a good night sleep again.
