The ITx 2016 Programme may change without notice
Not a day goes by where we don't hear of a website being hacked, a few hundred thousand user details being exposed, or another organisation scammed out of a pretty penny. The world of cyber security is hurtling along at break neck pace.
Nick Malcolm will push the pause button and look back at the highs and lows of the last year's major security incidents, and see what we can learn from them.
He will look at our current position, and in to the future. What are the threat trends and emerging risks we face awaiting us around the bend?
He will then show some of technologies and innovations which are helping to keep the web secure, educate the public, and empower IT professionals.
It's a rollercoaster, but it doesn't have to be scary - climb aboard and learn how to enjoy the ride!
Nick Malcolm is CTO at ThisData, a security startup, which means he gets to think about security all the time! He works with awesome people, in Auckland, New Zealand.
He's also an active member in the Ruby community, regularly speaking about coding and security. He is a member of OWASP NZ, ISIG (Info Sec Interest Group), CSA (Cloud Security Alliance), and Internet NZ.
When he's not coding, he's probably watching Battlestar Galactica, patting his cat, hugging his wife, or sitting outside playing guitar.
