Web Conference Overview:

Once again some brave (or foolish?) folks volunteer some insights and predictions into where infosec challenges will come from in 2014 and beyond. To a degree, changes in legislation and technology are easy meat to predict in a 12-month time frame. But what about environmental impacts such as cyberattacks and cyberwarfare trends? Will the cold wind of social media exploits bring infosec into focus for the ignorant end user? What is likely to be the next cataclysmic event to rock the industry? Where will the wind of change blow  security in the ”cloud?" Will the heat be turned up further on compliance requirements? Will there be a drought of funds making everything we want to do harder to achieve? Join us, make notes, and then check back in a year to see how we did!
