Cybersecurity Lessons From Game of Thrones


March is Women’s History Month! And, professionals in cybersecurity are literally making history as we speak, thanks to its ever changing, ever evolving nature! Join us for this special event.

Are you a Game of Thrones fan?! Regardless, come to this riveting presentation about the parallels between cybersecurity and "GoT". “Winter is coming,” was the familiar mantra of House Stark, one of the Great Houses of Westeros in Game of Thrones (GoT)`. These are words of warning and a call to remain vigilant. Engage about what the lessons are that we could take away from Game of Thrones to teach us about modern day Cybersecurity?
