What will I learn at AECS?

At AECS, participants will hear perspectives from industry thought leaders about solutions to the challenges androadblocks associated with sharing and collaboration. Participants will gain insights on how the adversary thinks and communicates by learning from a former hacker how cyber criminals freely share and collaborate to accomplish their goals of stealing information and money. Key Note addresses will draw from real-world examples, highlighting both the challenges and successes companies have experienced when sharing and collaborating on cyber incidents. The Key Note addresses will cover topics including the latest legal opinions on how to enable meaningful bi-directional sharing; real-world case studies and examples of sharing successes and challenges associated ; perspectives on how sharing and collaboration can reduce the risk to business and to national critical infrastructure; and a deep-dive into the Yahoo! data breach.
