Report Issues

The corporate world was rocked by a number of high-profile data breaches and ransomware attacks in 2018. Juniper Research estimated that the quantity of data stolen by cyber criminals could rise by as much as 175 percent over the next five years. 

Further, President Trump repealed net neutrality and data privacy regulations, giving tremendous control to ISPs. The ISPs are using this new power to throttle streaming and gaming companies unless they pay. And the mafia is also throttling consumer streaming and gaming, and selling their data to marketing companies.

Join us in a conversation about cyber security trends that are set to impact the enterprise, security professionals, companies of all sizes, and consumers in 2019.
