New D&O Symposium Session with Matt Salmon

We are excited to announce the addition of Matt Salmon to our annual D&O Symposium line-up!  Matt will be leading a discussion on Illuminating the Dark Web.  Every organization struggles to find a workable balance between security and convenience, and it’s unsettling to know that there are variables out of anyone’s control. Some of the most nefarious activities occur in the shadier corners of the Internet, commonly known as the Dark Web.

In this presentation we will take a journey into the Dark Web and give you a first-hand view into the type of sites that exist in its secrecy, allowing you to look at some of those uncontrollable variables. What do your Boards need to know to be better prepared to make cyber security decisions before a breach happens?  We will use the Dark Web as an avenue to identify nuances and exploitation strategies that are often overlooked. The insight gained from this presentation will help the audience determine potential threat vectors as the first step on the road to protecting yourself and ultimately finding a balance between convenience and security for your organization.

This is a presentation you won’t want to miss!
