Event Details


Cybersecurity is evolving. As with any young industry, cybersecurity has its share of growing pains. Mistakes, mystery, and even all out failure are common, but these stumbling blocks aren’t unique to cybersecurity. Even mankind needed to learn to crawl before it could walk and, just like our ancestors before us, the cybersecurity industry is finally standing on its own two feet. Evolution demands both constant change and the strength to make it through challenging times. In this new age of “Cybersecurity Bipedalism,” we see exciting milestones being reached every day as the industry marches forward.

Join GreyCastle Security, nationally-recognized cybersecurity experts, and experienced industry professionals in a conversation about the evolution of cybersecurity, cybercrime, trust-based decision making, and how the corporate world reacts to cyberattacks. Attendees will be presented with insight into the bright future of cybersecurity and new strategies for protecting valuable assets.

Breakout Session Track Descriptions 

Leadership Track

Security in business goes from the top down. Implementing strong, actionable cybersecurity strategies is a requirement for corporate leaders that want to maintain the competitive edge by better understanding the business environment and evolving more quickly to neutralize threats. Mitigating risk, protecting assets, and cyber resilience all rely on the union of business and security.

Legal Track

With business exploitation comes government interference. The world of cybersecurity regulation is fast-paced and confusing. Whether it is good or bad, compliance is the name of the game and we must all adhere to the necessary regulations. Get the information you need from cybersecurity attorneys sharing legal guidance on solutions they have seen firsthand.


Business Track

Corporate America is taking a security beating. Organizations large and small, in every industry, are falling victim to hackers, insider threats, and even inattentive employees. This staggering increase in cybercrime, coupled with dramatic increases in government regulations, have left more businesses vulnerable to both auditors and hackers. Developing an effective cybersecurity program and response plan has never been more important.


Technical Track
Your intellectual properly, data and bank accounts have never been at greater risk. In today’s digital environment, it’s not if you’ll be the target of a cyberattack – it’s when. Having a clear picture of today’s complicated security infrastructure and understanding risk are the only ways to build an effective security strategy while utilizing finite resources.


Human Track
Your people are your greatest asset – and your biggest security liability. Understanding how (and why) people make decisions is vital to protecting your assets against phishing attacks, social engineering, and other “human errors.” Learn the psychology behind your team’s decisions and how to teach them to make smarter ones.
