Presented by Jon Hallberg • Information Security Officer, Firefly Credit Union
Feeling a bit “Meh” About 2017 so far? In this session, we will compare and contrast with last year from the perspective of vulnerabilities, exploits and recent high-profile breaches. The Equifax data breach has been gathering plenty of headlines in recent weeks. What can we do to make sure this doesn’t happen to us? At times, it seems like there is no end in sight to securing your network, but there is hope!
We’ll talk about what’s changed, and what we as IT professionals can do to tackle 2018 with a better and brighter outlook.
