Title of presentation: Convergence: Virtual meets Physical
Consumer mobility and the Internet of Things are the latest influencers in the logical progression of cyber security. Assymetrical, disparate cyber breaches have taken this a step further by eliminating the need for proximity and encouraging lone wolves to connect.
Join us for the SIM December Gala, where Ed Davis, III – Former Commissioner of the Boston Police Department will discuss cybersecurity with an emphasis on consumer mobility and the Internet of Things - the latest influencers in the logical progression of cybersecurity.
