Keynote Stage

Panel Discussion

Technology is advancing at breakneck speed generating a lot of media and marketing hype – but what do these developments really mean for information security? Will they support the advancement of cybersecurity technologies and practices or lead to new attack vectors and threats? 

This panel will discuss the latest tech developments and whether they will have a tangible, practical impact on information security – are they just hype or is there substance behind the claims that they will be transformational? And how real are the risks posed by these technologies? The session will provide practical guidance on how information security professionals should prepare for the next tech frontier.
