The Changing World of Security Management: Observations of a Myopic Futurist
9:45am – 10:45am, Presented by: Dr. JT Kostman

The business world is about to change more quickly, and more dramatically, than it ever has before. Over the coming decade, frontier technologies – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cybersecurity, Blockchain, IoT – will have a greater impact on the global economy than any force since electricity. Forrester Research is projecting that "Businesses adopting AI, IoT, and Big Data will take $1.2 trillion from their less informed peers by 2020." Cyber-assaults, social engineering, and globally launched criminal networks are likewise rapidly on the rise. Criminality, hacktivism, and social targeting have started to impact organizations in every industry and sector. The expectations of Security Professionals – as they are increasingly expected to protect ephemeral, invisible, and invaluable assets – is correspondently increasing and changing.
With such high stakes, there will be unprecedented winners - and many more losers. Join us for a provocative discussion to understand the factors that will separate those professionals who thrive from those whose careers won't survive - and come away with a better understanding of what you can do to ensure that you and your organization will be among the few to reap the future's rewards.
