In the Wake of Equifax Breach, Senior Leaders Gathered in Toronto to Address Pressing Issues
Princeton, N.J. September 14, 2017
Information Security Media Group, the leading media provider to the information security community, continued its global summit series with its Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit at the Delta Hotels Toronto Sept. 12-13. The event featured influential cybersecurity leaders, including keynoters Art Coviello, retired chairman of RSA; and Gord Jamieson, Visa’s senior director of Canada risk services. The Toronto event gathered leaders from a variety of security sectors to discuss the trending topics in the cybersecurity environment, including the massive Equifax data breach, GDPR compliance and cyberattack trends in 2017 and beyond.
Among the attendees were senior leaders from all of the Big 5 Canadian financial institutions—CIBC, TD, BMO, Scotia and RBC—who engaged with the strong lineup of subject matter experts who made presentations as well as the vendor exhibitors.
Among the technology companies featured in the exhibit hall and in informational sessions were RSA, CA, Skybox Security, Trendmicro, Entrust, Lastline, R-sam, Centrify and Arbor Networks.
“In the current environment we live in, cybersecurity topics are top of mind for all organizations. This was never more clear than at our event in Toronto, where both the Equifax breach and GDPR were addressed throughout,” said Mike D’Agostino, ISMG’s general manager. “Senior practitioner were able to hear from leading security experts, ask questions and engage over the two days, walking away with actionable take-aways for when they return the office.”
ISMG also has held summits this year in San Francisco, Mumbai, Atlanta, Washington, Chicago, Sydney, Bengaluru, Delhi and New York. Upcoming events will be held in Singapore, London and Mumbai. Plus, a summit focused on healthcare sector security is slated for New York in November.
