Trust in 2017:  In What & Whom Do We Trust?

June 9, 2017

Presented by Galois and Seven Peaks Ventures

The current era of connectivity, cloud and devices have enabled organizations, individuals, and machines to interact and communicate at “network effect” speed, scale and price. With that comes significant challenges in how these communications are trusted. Trust is at the heart of the issues and challenges every organization, individual and industry is currently facing. Whether trust of our information and media we individually consume or trust of algorithms making automated decisions for health care, autonomous driving, or financial transactions, we are confronted with exponentially increasing threats and challenges and our globally connected world makes this even more difficult.

On June 9, leading cyber security practitioners from around the country will gather to discuss the realities, advances, and challenges related to trust in Cyber Security.
