Cybersecurity has been making headlines for decades, especially with stories like NotPetya’s cyber-attack on Ukraine, Sony and Adobe’s data breaches, Yahoo!, Facebook, and First American’s data leaks, and more recently, Bezos’s phone hack by Saudi Arabia. Alongside, with the explosion of modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Mobile Apps, and Internet of Things (IoT), it’s become increasingly prevalent how being secure is no longer an option. In fact, it’s the number one priority for many companies and individuals right now, especially with new data-collection and security legislation taking place.

By popular demand, we are bringing you one of the most debated topics of the century. Join Tech in Motion on Thursday, March 12th as we gather for our first Tech Talk of 2020 to hear top industry leaders discuss the state of cybersecurity. You’ll want to be front row for this conversation, as we deep dive into the impact of data breaches, 2020 trends, outline top risks, and forecast the effects of new laws and regulations.

This is an event you won’t want to miss! There will also be complimentary food & drinks for everyone, so be sure to RSVP and secure your spot.
