Telling Compelling Stories with Data

We live in a data-driven world, where effective graphics are key to the delivery of information. When a graphical piece of information is done right, you can't tell that there is design behind it - information flows to the viewer clearly and efficiently. 

Dona Wong will demonstrate:

  1. How to turn data into a compelling, persuasive story
  2. How to use graphics effectively in your presentations
  3. The Dos and Don'ts of information graphics- common pitfalls and how to avoid them

Data Security: Cloud Computing, Mobility and Regulations

Sensitive data is being moved into the cloud and accessed by remote or mobile users over public or unsecured networks. As a result, the perimeters of security have to focus on particular control points like identity and data security. CISOs need to know where the sensitive data is, who has the ability to access it, and how well it is actually being protected. Data security priorities are also incredibly heightened by regulations and compliance, such as the launch of GDPR in May.

Why AI is the Future of Email Security

Email is far and away the most common initial vector for cybersecurity breaches and this problem only continues to grow. In 2018 the FBI estimates over $12 billion was stolen through business email compromise. Attackers have become ever more sophisticated, shifting from broad campaigns to carefully crafted attacks that bypass traditional email security. This talk focuses on why these attacks are difficult to stop and how advances in AI, specifically in machine learning and natural language processing, can be used to prevent advanced email fraud. We will discuss real examples of attacks, analyze why traditional approaches fail, and illustrate how data science is the best approach to preventing business email compromise, advanced spear phishing, and email account compromise.

Enhancing Your Edge

Edge computing is computing topology in which the content collection and delivery are placed closer to their endpoints. The goal of edge computing is to keep the traffic and processing local to eliminate delays and reduce traffic. Currently, edge computing is being driven by IoT and requires processing to be close to the end rather than on a centralized cloud server. However, rather than creating brand new architecture, cloud computing and edge computing will evolve into centralized service executing on centralized servers, on-premise servers and on the edge devices themselves.

Takeaways:

  1. Review your organization's progress within edge computing.
  2. How to adapt centralized service execution.
  3. The future of edge computing and its potential capabilities
