The networking continues!

CWO : DIGITAL and AKAMAI present a virtual experience – with real wine

Hacking Criminal Economics to Prevent Security Threats 

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

Criminal computer hacking predates the PC, but how much is really known about today’s criminal economy?

This December, join CWO : DIGITAL and Akamai and get under the skin of computer hackers to gain insight into the motivations and methods that fuel their attacks. At this unique virtual networking event, learn how criminal enterprise operations work, and how your peers are defending their organizations. To accompany the industry discussion, we’ll send you a selection of the finest wines straight to your door for you to enjoy alongside your fellow attendees! 

Developing a security strategy, justifying a budget, and executing a plan with limited information about the enemy is a challenge. But understanding how the enemy operates can help. Learn how to incorporate your knowledge of criminal economics to develop and execute a security strategy that centers around attacker motivations, criminal tactics, criminal enterprise operations and the ROI of defense.  

Join Akamai guest speakers Shane Keats (Global Director of Video Industry Marketing, Akamai), Ritika Tandon (Senior Manager, Solutions Engineering), and Steve Ragan (Senior Writer, Security Intelligence) as they share use cases from the video streaming and gaming industries, enterprise software and hardware, as well as the news publishing industry. 

This is an exclusive opportunity for 15 leading CISOs and IT innovators to advise, discuss and explore the requirements of a future-proof security strategy that can out-compete the criminal hacker. In true CWO style, prepare to mix business with pleasure as our dedicated wine expert takes you through a virtual wine tasting. After some lighthearted competition where your palates are put to the test, one lucky attendee will be crowned the ultimate title, ‘Chief Wine Officer!’
