TechWomen Power Breakfast - "How to Thrive in a Hyper-Connected World" with Cisco chief security officer, Edna Conway
How much thought do you give to the information shared by the apps on your phone?
Angry Birds, Pinterest, and Facebook all rub elbows with email, Google Maps, and Instagram.
I bet you even do banking from your phone. It's a convenience, right?
But what about security?
Every time you download an app you get a pop-up screen detailing which files and processes the app "needs" access to.
You might feel confident in your banking app's ability to protect your data, but what about all those other fun little games and tools you download on a whim? Are they really safe? And how much access do they really need to your personal data?
Cisco's chief security officer Edna Conway will be presenting "How to Thrive in a Hyper-connected World" at this month's TechWomen Power Breakfast 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM Wednesday, December 12th at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford.
Her talk will focus on "the complexities of the digital world to help explain what can happen when security is not up to par and a breach occurs and why every person, regardless of profession, should be concerned with security" and include a comprehensive discussion about "how to design, deploy and monitor security measures, as well as how people can collaborate to establish and maintain trust."
It should be an enlightening presentation whether you're a woman in tech, or just someone who uses phone apps and online tools for activities of daily living.
