Summary: We will take you through the entire journey on how blunders like Equifax occur, and more importantly, what could have been done differently to avoid this type of business crippling mistake. You will learn what actually goes wrong behind the scenes, and how it can happen to any business not paying attention to cyber-security. We will provide you with tried and proven examples of what technologies to use, architectures to use, and processes and procedures to put in place. This discussion will have something for everyone. Whether you are a C-level executive, software engineer, or simply have an interest in cybersecurity, this talk is for you.
