Thanks to all who attended and sponsored our 2017 Information Security Summit. It was a great turnout where we discussed a number of issues and threats facing InfoSec today. We were happy to see attendees share ideas and continue the discussion online with #summitbuzz17

Gary Miliefsky, CEO of Snoopwall, Inc., said the issues posed by cloud data storage affect many people, even those who do not think they use the cloud themselves.
“There are devices in your house and in your pocket that use cloud storage, and you don’t even think about it,” he said, pointing to an incident in which Samsung TVs with internet connectivity stored words they overheard in the cloud. “People are giving up privacy rights for connectivity.”*
Keynote speaker and Former Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley noted “We Can’t Be Afraid Of New Frontiers Like Cloud”.
