We’re combining our experience in the physical and digital spaces to bring Chief Wine Officer to your door.
The networking continues!

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

A Hacker’s Guide to Criminal Economics

WHAT’S ON THE VIRTUAL AGENDA

This March, 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. By incorporating knowledge of criminal economics, you can develop and execute a security strategy that centers around attacker motivations, criminal tactics, criminal enterprise operations and the ROI of defense.

Join journalist and Information Security Researcher Steve Ragan with Security Publications Editor Amanda Goedde as they share use cases – including from the video streaming and gaming industries, enterprise software and hardware, as well as the news publishing industry – that demonstrate how you too can secure your organization against criminal activities.

This is an exclusive opportunity for 15 leading 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!’
