“Addressing the human aspect”
“We all know the statistics, we all know hackers target people and we all know by exploiting people, criminals have an easy way into our networks,” said CybSafe CEO Oz Alashe. “That’s what makes addressing the human aspect so important. In my eyes, it’s the most important challenge we, as a community, need to overcome.
This isn’t about exclusivity as much as it’s about the security industry coming together to discuss and share insights on an important topic. The summit is free to attend. It’s also online. It doesn’t matter where you are. You can join us, and I’d encourage those with an interest in security to do so.”
