Sep 20, 2018 - Info security, by Michael Stoylar
Infosecurity North America Comes to New York’s Jacob Javits Convention Center for a Two-Day Event on November 14-15
Infosecurity Group, producers of Europe’s no.1 information security event, today announced the launch of its second annual Infosecurity North America Expo and Conference. The event will be held November 14-15 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, with world renowned hacker-turned-consultant -- and once target of the FBI’s Most Wanted list -- Kevin Mitnick, headlining the event’s keynote. Infosecurity North America will also bring together other leading members of the cybersecurity community to lead the critical debate around trends at the forefront of the industry.
Kevin and The Global Ghost Team™ now maintain a 100 percent successful track record of being able to penetrate the security of any system they are paid to hack into. This year’s event will allow attending industry professionals and exhibitors alike to take a deep dive into the mind of the world’s most famous hacker as he performs a live hacking demo on-site.
“The growing threat landscape is rife with geopolitical cyberwarfare and massive data breaches that have reached peak heights in the last year,” said John Hyde, Exhibition Director. “There’s no better time to gather the immense US cybersecurity community – for the first time in NYC – to discuss innovation while addressing the dominant issues in the industry through in-depth networking opportunities, educational resources and immersive experiences.”
Infosecurity North America is founded by Infosecurity Group, who has provided the global information security community with some of the largest, longest established conferences and expos over the past 23 years including Infosecurity Europe. The topics covered at Infosecurity North America were compiled following intensive customer research and include a number of critical information security issues and emerging concepts such as malware, cloud security, governance, regulation and compliance, threats, professional development, application security and digital forensics. Some of the confirmed speakers for this year’s event include:
