Tuesday Keynote Address

Patrick GrayThe Confluence of Data Security Challenges
Patrick Gray, IT Security Consultant
Tuesday, March 1

The Internet threat landscape has shifted. What used to be a playground for hackers, crackers, script kiddies and packet monkeys is now a borderless abyss of organized crime fueled by financial gain and state sponsored forays into our critical infrastructures. Patrick Gray, a 20-year veteran of the FBI, will explore the current threat landscape by highlighting the newest cyber criminals and examining the latest tactics employed by these predators. Gray will address how organized criminal groups, state-sponsored groups, botmasters and hackers interact with this new crime element utilizing incredible technologies and how we can prepare to stave off these relentless attacks and protect our critical infrastructures. The focus will include public sector agencies, advanced persistent threats, IoT ventures and Nation State forays into our critical infrastructures.
